Impact is built and driven by leaders who feel a responsibility and duty to improve our civic life and discourse. They come from various backgrounds with differing views and perspectives but all share the common bond that objective analysis, open minds, and hard work are the key ingredients to progress.

What causes are you most passionate about?

Access to affordable health care, financial literacy, racial discrimination, LGBTQ and gender rights

What do you think some of the most pressing problems we face are?

Increased polarization and misinformation campaigns. What drew me to Impact is its unique ability to remove the politics from issues and provide a forum for people to listen to experts and make an informed decision.
