Executive Director, National Domestic Workers Alliance
Ai-jen Poo, renowned activist and thought-leader, will speak about the current political climate and the importance of creating a multi-racial, multi-generational movement that centers on the most vulnerable among us. Using the work of the National Domestic Worker Alliance as an example, Poo will explore the enormous potential for change in this moment as well as her conviction that we are “all activists now.”
Ai-jen Poo is the author of The Age of Dignity: Caring for a Changing America (2015) and winner of a 2014 MacArthur “genius” grant.
