During the 1970’s, APB speaker Cleve Jones pioneered the gay liberation movement alongside such historical figures as Harvey Milk. He recounts his life-long experience with human rights activism in his memoir When We Rise, the book that inspired ABC’s new mini-series of the same name.
We care about not only pleasing the audience during a keynote speech, but making a genuine impact on others to change the world for the better. With a new year upon us, our APB speakers are sharing their thoughts on how to take action and improve well-being.
Since the death of her 17-year-old son, Trayvon Martin, APB speaker Sybrina Fulton has become an inspiring spokesperson for parents and concerned citizens nationwide. Her dedication to make a change landed her on People magazine’s list of Top 25 Women Changing the World. Fulton’s goal is to end senseless shootings in America, like the one that took the life of her son.
APB speakers Sybrina Fulton and Lezley McSpadden will speak at the Democratic National Convention as part of “Mothers of the Movement,” mothers of black men and women who have been killed by gun violence or while in the custody of police.
