CHANGEMAKER PANELISTS

 

The panelists presenting at this conference include activists who have run for local and national office, managed non-profits, started businesses, initiated grassroots campaigns, worked for high-level government officials, established mentoring programs, taught classes in unique settings, organized marches, and envisioned new ways of thinking about art, activism, wellness, politics, and more.

The panelists will also be participants at the conference, with opportunities for all attendees and speakers to engage with each other, make new connections, and pursue new actions and ideas. The organizers hope the conference attendees will be inspired to see themselves as Changemakers and envision what we all can do together next.

** SPEAKER/PANELIST UPDATE:  Thank you to Shasti Conrad & Margaret Jacobsen for your time & willingness to be a part of our conference.  Unfortunately, circumstances beyond their control have made it so that they are regrettably no longer able to be panelists at our conference.  We regret any disappointment this may cause for those who plan to attend.  We are happy to announce that we have some outstanding replacements!  Senator Sara Gelser, Lisa Gonzales, & Seferiana Day have joined our panelists!
