Linnea Brett, Community Organizer

Linnea Brett first joined Clean Air as a canvasser in 2014, returning in 2018 as an organizer. The youngest of six, from a working class family from Niagara Falls, Linnea studied at the University at Buffalo, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Public Policy, and a Master of Urban Planning, specializing in Environmental and Land Use Planning. She is also a coach for Showing Up For Racial Justice (SURJ) chapters across the country, and is active in her home chapter, SURJ Buffalo. She loves the rush and intensity of direct action and the new connections forged through door to door canvassing, finds data entry soothing, and feels best when she’s creating brave, loving spaces for folks to vision, strategize, struggle, and take risks together. When she’s not doing organizing work, you can find her trying new recipes, trying to keep her plants alive, and hanging out with her partner Clarissa and their cats, Waffles and Rafael.
