Policy is too often created without the voices of the people most impacted by it, which perpetuates long-standing injustice and inequity. The status quo is unacceptable. Next100 is working to change it.

Join Next100’s policy entrepreneurs on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, 6:00–8:00 PM ET as they share how their lived experiences intersect with the policy issues that drive them, and how they inform the policy solutions they have worked on over the past year. You’ll leave with a better sense of who each of our policy entrepreneurs is through their personal narrative, as well as with a stronger understanding of why you should care about the issues they are so passionate about and how we might begin to solve them.

A Q&A and reception with light refreshments will follow. 

All public areas of the venue are wheelchair accessible.
