Brianna Johnson is a recent graduate of the University of Southern California, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in political science. She previously worked as a field organizer in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Nevada Democratic party, for which she and her team won every race in her district. She has also been a communications intern with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Communications Office and a research intern for UNESCO.
At USC, Brianna studied abroad in Nicaragua, where she conducted research on wealthy return migrants’ impact on the Nicaraguan economy. Her time in Nicaragua inspired her undergraduate honors thesis topic – an investigation into how the Catholic Church and Nicaraguan political structure have impacted abortion legislation in the country. For this project, she was excited to interview feminist activists and to be published in the USC-UNESCO journal. Her work in Nicaragua inspired her to co-found a chapter of the Global Women’s Narratives Project chapter in Managua focused on recording and sharing the stories of Nicaraguan women. A true Trojan at heart, Brianna is thrilled to continue her time on USC’s beautiful campus, furthering the mission of CCLP.
