Participates in 6 items
Brianna Wu is a 2020 Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress in Massachusetts-District 8. Brianna is also head of development at GSX, a Boston independent videogame studio, which produced “Revolution 60”. She has hosted several long-running podcasts on videogames and tech issues, including “Rocket” on Relay FM. If elected, she hopes to use her computer expertise to fight for better cybersecurity, and to protect our personal and financial information and our national’s nuclear infrastructure from cyberattacks. Brianna came to national prominence when she and other women working in the tech industry were personally targeted by alt-right hate groups, including one spearheaded by Steve Bannon, one-time Chief Strategist to Donald Trump. Despite threats on her life and her family, Brianna has never wavered as a voice for the marginalized, including women, people of color and LGBT individuals. The story of her continuing fight for social and economic justice has been told and fictionalized in several media, including in an episode of Law & Order: SVU and on The SyFy Channel. She also races motorcycles and her infamous twitter handle is @spacekatgal and her website is BriannaWuForCongress.com
