Inspiration and Courage for Movement Building in Philanthropy

LaTosha Brown, Co-Founder, Black Voters Matter Fund

My whole life, I wanted to be a part of change. I wanted to use my gifts and skills to help people tap into their own sense of power. — LaTosha Brown  

As a strategy for change, movement building has leapt to the forefront of philanthropic conversations. However, many are still stuck at the conversation stage: They don’t know how, or feel they don’t have the positional power, to help move from discussion to concrete action.

During our opening keynote, LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Votes Matter Fund, will empower attendees to go from talking about change to setting it into motion. Sharing highlights and lessons learned from her real-life experiences, LaTosha will encourage attendees to advance change fearlessly, facilitate courageous conversations, and develop leadership that is built upon, and supports, the values of equity, justice, and inclusion.
