Hear from Primo Center (Nov. 2), Chicago’s largest provider of services and shelter for homeless families, Humanity Showers (Nov. 2), a rapidly expanding San Diego not for profit organization that provides 100 to 150 showers a week to its local homeless population, and America’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer Winner, Voices of the City Choir (Nov. 2.). All three of these special organizations place focus on the individual behind the social epidemic.

“We believe that recovery is a collaboration. That collaboration is best built by having quality interactions and friendships with those experiencing homelessness. These conversations are a vital way to learn about their needs and how to serve them better.”  Says Jordan Verdin, founder Humanity Showers.

This session will also feature a not-to-miss performance by the Voices of the City Choir, a San Diego based not for profit leveraging the healing power of music to help those suffering from homelessness. By providing a better quality of life these groups are also strengthening the community at large.

Christy Turlington Burns, birthed Every Mother Counts (Nov. 9) with the goal of providing a more equitable landscape by ensuring all women have access to quality, respectful and equitable maternity care.  Too few women have the access they need.

Cousteau and her partner Fritz Neumeyer, an academic visionary will tell us about their Global Seaweed Project, an effort to quantify seaweed carbon sequestration in an effort to address the climate crisis while also contributing to ocean restoration. This groundbreaking 15 month study spans across 5 continents with goal of advancing science and creating market incentives for seaweed aquaculture.

One Mind (Nov. 23).  When Shari and Garen Staglin’s son, Brandon, was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1990, they realized that advancements in scientific research were vital to understanding mental illness – and so they took action. On their Napa Valley vineyard in 1995, they started the Music Festival for Brain Health, an event that to this day brings together wineries, chefs, top-bill musicians and scientists to raise awareness and funding for brain health research.

Staglin Family Vineyard’s SALUS wines donate 100% percent of the sales profits to their non-profit One Mind.  Through the Staglins’ vision, efforts and outreach more than $515 million has been raised over the past three decades to support an impressive portfolio of brain health initiatives. One Mind has seeded and accelerated important work in brain science with a steadfast focus on and awareness of the urgency to deliver hope to patients and families touched by brain injury and illness.

Aim High (Nov. 30) believes every student has the right to a quality education.
