WE are


We are people who care deeply about the future of our country and have found a home for our activism by creating it. We’re technology developers, brand executives, business executives, writers, lawyers, not-for-profit executives, political strategists, and more...

Our founding team includes:

Danielle was previously the Head of the Tony Blair Foundation (US). At the age of 16, Danielle co-founded Kids for Peace, which in 2017 engaged over 10 million children in its signature Great Kindness Challenge. Danielle graduated from Harvard College.
