While many students are locking themselves in their rooms or living in the library until finals are over, SF State student Brittany Moore is using study breaks to take to the street and continue her work as a student activist. Moore currently holds a 4.0 GPA in her five courses and hopes to finish the semester strong, but that doesn’t mean shirking her responsibilities as founder of the Black and Brown Liberation Coalition on campus or diminishing her active dedication to the Black Lives Matter movement. Scroll through the photos and take a walk in her shoes as a student activist attending in the Millions March in San Francisco.
