The greatest danger to our future is apathy.

Jane Goodall

The last year has been a very challenging time for everyone everywhere. For the first time in a generation, the world faces a common crisis: COVID-19. Not only are we facing a global pandemic, we are facing major concerns about systemic racism in our country. Every day brings new changes that we must face, confront, and make choices about.

That’s why CARE has launched the CARE Speakers Series, bringing together influencers, celebrities, and experts who bring fresh perspectives to today’s issues, translate ideas into action, and lead in crisis.

Each speaker has a unique approach to the problems we face as a global community, particularly in the face of COVID-19. Now more than ever, we need the leadership of these exceptional thinkers and doers as we work together to chart a path forward that is equitable, just, and inclusive.

Join us as and get to know the leaders who translate ideas into action and lead through crisis.
