Why are U.S. officials waiting to #BringBrittneyHome?
Brittney Griner is a Black, queer woman and one of top players in the WNBA and in the overseas professional basketball league for the last 9 years! She has been detained by the Russian government under suspicious pretenses without U.S. consular support!
News of Brittney’s detention began to circulate in U.S. media on March 5th, weeks after her detainment. The lack of transparency and communication from Russian authorities has caused experts on to call into doubt the allegations against Brittney.
To combat this injustice, BFF launched the #BringBrittneyHome campaign to raise awareness and amplify the call to urge U.S. officials.
- We demand the U.S. government prioritize the swift and safe release and return of Brittney Griner back to the United States - facing no charges.
- We demand ongoing visible proof of Brittney Griner’s safety and wellbeing as well as consistent communication and wellness checks while in custody.
- We demand Brittney Griner have access to the same benefits and protections as any other U.S. citizen, including but not limited to consistent U.S. consular access.

The experiences of Black women, girls, and gender-expansive people are often forgotten or erased. In 2020, BFF launched Black Womxn Are Essential to circumvent this erasure by clocking the racial and gender impact of COVID on this community through a collection of data, observation, and shared understanding. The ultimate goal of collecting this data is to use this resource to inform our collective work and help us move in a more impactful manner to serve our communities.

Brittney Griner has been in Russia since February 17, and U.S. officials are waiting to bring her home. Unfortunately, the response to Brittney’s detainment from U.S. media and elected officials has been tepid, and has had relatively low media visibility. Brittney’s safe return is clearly not a priority for U.S. officials, and Black Feminist Future wants to know: Why?
Black feminisms explain how systems of oppression and power like white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc. are both interconnected and systemic.
