Heather McGee

We are honored to welcome keynote speaker Heather McGhee—a voice for this moment and for our collective future. The immediate past president of nonpartisan thinktank Demos and an NBC News political analyst, McGhee has testified before Congress, drafted legislation, and developed racial justice strategies for organizations and campaigns that won changes to improve the lives of millions. She is currently the chair of the board of Color of Change.

Her résumé includes performances at Lollapalooza and Glastonbury, six sold-out shows with the Minnesota Orchestra–including a live recording, Sound the Bells, released in November 2019–and a track on Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton Mixtape album.
