30 new speakers you’ll meet in LA

// By Christian Clansky

We’re just a bit more than two months away from Upswell. In November, 1,500 changemakers from across the United States – and you, we hope! – will gather in Los Angeles for three days of ideas and action.

Now that we’re in the post-Labor Day homestretch, we’ll be sharing all kinds of big announcements. First up, we’re excited to introduce you to 30 new speakers! Each one has a unique perspective on doing good – and together, they show just how broad, deep, and inspiring the term “changemaker” is.
