Grassroots Community Organizing: The Key to Change (Virtual)
For decades, the same problems have persisted in the same neighborhoods: high poverty rates, low educational attainment, low home ownership, and more. They have persisted despite intervention from thousands of organizations and government. In Philadelphia, one of the most apparent consequences is the prevalence of gun violence, with over 1.7K shooting victims already this year. Why? With over a decade of experience in the social impact space, Hillary Do believes she knows the answer and what we can do to change it. Join this session to learn more.
Hillary Do is a Harvard College '17 graduate with a degree in Social Studies and Computer Science. She holds an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where she was a Leadership for Society Scholar and Stanford Impact Founder Fellow. For those from Philly, she is a graduate of Central High School (class of 272!). She is the founder of PhillyBOLT, working to empower grassroots leaders in historically marginalized neighborhoods. She has over a decade of experience in civic technology, local government, community organizing and business strategy. She dreams of a Philadelphia where every neighborhood thrives, led by the people living in them.
