COVID-19 has disrupted modern society on a scale that most people have never witnessed—and its impact on and implications for our generation are profound. As Governor Cuomo reminds us, we can control how we get up when this is over—and our challenge is to ensure that the inevitable transformation of our world is positive.

On May 3, a powerful lineup of speakers—Senator Cory Booker, Emily Ratajkowski, Simon Sinek, Sopan Deb, Ramy Youssef, Jessamyn Stanley, Yung Pueblo, Emily Nagoski, Anne Helen Petersen, Ada Calhoun, and many more—come together online to ask the big questions and explore solutions for the change that’s urgently needed.

Join us for the most important summit of the year. We are the ones who must shape the future. Here’s where we can start.
