Announcing new speaker: Tobita Chow

We’re excited to announce our newest feature speaker, Tobita Chow, a co-author of The Movement We Need: Think Strategically, Act Strategically, a daring guide on how grassroots strategies can reshape broken systems.

Tobita Chow isn’t afraid of taking bold risks and pushing the envelope to create people-led movements that confront and challenge the status quo.

In fact, Tobita knows it’s the only way to create lasting change.
