About Johnetta Elzie

Johnetta Elzie is an African-American civil rights activist, and a strong voice of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. After the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Netta joined up and helped map police brutality across the nation to show just how bad the injustice inflicted on the black community by police really is. As the list of black lives tragically lost to police violence grows, so does Johnetta’s voice for equal rights, now reaching hundreds of thousands on her social media feeds. As a proud young black woman, she fights for a future where police violence doesn’t have to be a part of anyone’s reality.
