Meet Brettina - the New Organizer at Corcoran Neighborhood!


Hello, Corcoran Neighborhood Residents! I’m Brettina Davis and I am the new Organizer at Corcoran Neighborhood. Though I know I will be filling big shoes by replacing Ross, I am ready to take on the job and make it my own. I grew up in Minneapolis and adore the city, but I ended up going to University of Wisconsin Stout for four years. I graduated with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Cognitive Neuroscience. After I graduated I went through a few different types of employment: waitress, host, retail, and social media marketing. After leaving the social media marketing job, and dealing with a great amount of discrimination there, I started studying black history to better understand my roots. This is when I sat at a table with my mentor (Mel Reeves), close activist friends (Thandisizwe Jackson-Nisan and Rose Engstrom), and some other amazing activists to start the Twin Cities Coalition for Justice 4 Jamar. It was only fitting that after an interview with Eric Gustafson, Executive Director at Corcoran Neighborhood, I take a position that calls for change and equality in the community. Being an Organizer means caring about the community and making sure every voice is heard! I plan on learning Spanish so I can connect with those of you who speak Spanish. I am excited to door knock, to meet, and to build in this community. Feel free to stop by and chat with me. Excited to meet all of you. Solidarity!
