Keynote speakers will share stories of personal advocacy that will inspire you to take positive action to ensure bright futures for every child.

Nikole Hannah-Jones covers racial injustice for The New York Times Magazine, where her deeply personal reports on the black experience in America offer a compelling case for greater equity. She was named a 2017 MacArthur Genius Grant Fellow for “reshaping national conversations around education reform” and for her reporting on racial re-segregation in our schools. Hannah-Jones also co-founded the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting with the goal to increase the number of reporters and editors of color.

 

Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha is the author of What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City, a powerful first-hand account of the Flint water crisis and a riveting narrative of personal advocacy. Dr. Hanna-Attisha directs the Michigan State University and Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative, an innovative program created to research the impact of the Flint Water Crisis and help all Flint children grow up healthy and strong.
