Why you should listen
Nancy Lublin draws our attention to an often underappreciated source of social action — not just those at the top, but those in the middle. Separating the new and the scalable from what actually makes an impact, Nancy calls for a culture of doers. She is the CEO and Chief Old Person of DoSomething.org, the largest organization in America for young people and social change, and the founder of Dress for Success, the organization that helps women transition from welfare to work.
Nancy is deeply passionate about Do Something and the activist mission behind the organization. She says her first activist campaign was liberating the purple crayons in pre-school after one loud boy had declared them “not allowed for girls.”
