Come listen to this amazing group of leaders and be inspired! Elders are people we have identified as mentors for the next generation of activists and they are willing to impart the lessons they have learned from their hard work and experience.

Don’t miss this special opportunity with an amazing collection of spiritual leaders who have been speaking truth to power for decades.
