Honoree: Judy Blei in recognition of her decades of leadership as a champion for reproductive health and rights in Connecticut.

FEATURED SPEAKER:  Deja Foxx

Activist. Organizer. Badass. Future POTUS. From homelessness in high school to the forefront of the reproductive justice movement, Deja is changing the world at 19 years old and recently launched her latest project @GenZGirlGang.

In the past year, she was named a Teen Vogue “21 under 21”, became a Dazed 100 activist, received Planned Parenthood of New York’s Catalyst for Change award, became M.A.C. Cosmetic’s youngest ever ambassador, and joined Nike at the Women's World Cup as a Dream Leader.

Her activism journey began in 2015 when she became homeless and experienced firsthand how her school's current sex education was disproportionately affecting students like her.

Perhaps best known for her exchange with former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake challenging his support of legislation to take away Title X federal funding from Planned Parenthood during a town hall meeting which went viral and propelled her to the forefront of the reproductive justice movement, landing her an interview on CNN.

She has since lobbied on Capitol Hill, organized around issues of ending family separation and gun violence, helped to create the El Rio Reproductive Health Access Project, and joined JUV Consulting as a Senior Partner.

The passionate activist and organizer from Tucson, Arizona, has been called “the new face of Planned Parenthood” by The Washington Post and is currently studying at Columbia University where she is on the Dean’s List.
