Every year at the Washington State Nonprofit Conference, over 500 nonprofit and civil society leaders come together to celebrate successes and tackle tough issues. This year we will examine what shifts we are experiencing and how we can adapt to our rapidly changing world. We will gather together thought leaders with diverse perspectives who will challenge our thinking and lead us to solutions for the future.

Inspiring Keynote Speaker: Connie Rice

A former NAACP Legal Defense Fund’s lawyer and the founder of the Advancement Project, Connie Rice left the courtroom and took to the streets of Los Angeles to fight gang violence.
