Meet our Keynote Speakers
_______________________
We have three General Sessions and are currently soliciting questions for our speakers. 

Youth Speakeasy - We have 3 high school students that will be speaking during the opening session. We will not be doing a Q&A with the audience, however, we are asking for people to submit questions for the students, as they will be 
participating in a TEEN TALK workshop session immediately following the general session.  

Barbara Boxer & Jesse Williams will both participate in an audience Q&A. As we are not offering real-time questions at 
the conference, be sure to submit questions ahead of time! Deadline: April 1st, 2017.

Here is the link to submit questions https://goo.gl/forms/HMhiXg8uAqWPFCq82  



Please share with your networks - even if people are not attending, we encourage them to submit questions! Thank you!
