Five years ago, Patrisse Khan-Cullors gave a name to a movement that would go on to spark a national conversation and demand a place on the global stage.


Giving Advocacy a Megaphone

Challenging traditional dialogues and making substantial changes in the police and prison state don’t come from art and words alone. You have to impart these concepts to others, so they can continue the ripple of change. Patrisse is a speaker, motivator, and educator; a megaphone for the voiceless as she teaches others to organize and mobilize activism. This page features her work as a speaker. Make sure you check back with her blog for updates on speaking and educator engagements.
