My Budget Activist Panel at Shiftcon 2019

ShiftCon has long been the only conference that can get me onto an airplane.

This year, the annual eco-wellness influencer conference will be held October 3-5 in Atlanta. The keynote speaker is my friend and co-author Alysia Reiner, star of Orange is the New Black.

And the best part – I get to host a panel on my favorite subject, the title of my new book: “Being a Budget Activist: How to Make Change with Limited Time and Resources”

The panel will address how can we make meaningful change without millions to spend and unlimited time. We’ll share examples of individuals and small groups who started successful letter campaigns, petitions, and even smaller and simpler acts that made a difference – from making change at national companies to hyperlocal advocacy wins. There are thousands of people who have affected big and small changes in their own communities. Whether it’s saving a historic building, changing a corporate policy, stopping an oil pipeline, or getting graffiti cleaned up, these success stories will offer concrete tips for being an effective changemaker!

Other amazing changemakers who will be speaking at the conference include Marci Zaroff, Ashley Koff, RD, Laura Saltman, Dr. Christina Hemphill Fuller, and Na’Taki Osborne Jelks.

Sponsors including some of my favorite forward-thinking brands like Beautycounter, Nutiva, Naturepedic, Numi, NOW Foods, Rebbl, Lotus Foods, and more
