Zainab Baloch (ZB)

We're excited to announce that our 2019 keynote speaker will be Zainab Baloch, a former and future Raleigh City Council Candidate who disrupted the local political system by garnering an historically unprecedented number of voters in only two months in 2017. She is the founder of YAP! which provides local avenues for young people to bear witness to policy decisions and boldly pursue accountability through voting and outspoken, unapologetic action through technology.

She works for Even, a startup whose mission is to the end the paycheck to paycheck cycle which goes hand in hand with her work with the Poor People’s Campaign (PPC) where she engages millennials nationally to join the movement. She is part of a documentary with the PPC about Youth Activism in the movement and was featured America Inside Out, a National Geographic Documentary with Katie Couric. She wants to empower others especially young people, people of color, and woman to not be afraid of disrupting the system to bring about positive change.
