Kerri Kelly, TEDxWashingtonSquare, 10.15.16

KERRI KELLY is the founder of CTZNWELL, a movement to mobilize the wellbeing community into a powerful force for change. Her work was sparked on 9-11, when she lost her fireman step-dad in the towers. She quickly discovered the power of mindfulness, not just as a tool for personal healing but as a catalyst for collective change. Since then, Kerri has worked passionately across communities to fight for justice and wellbeing. Kerri is recognized for her work to bridge personal practice with social change and politics. She’s been instrumental in translating the tools of wellbeing into practical application and social action in the public sector, working in collaboration with community organizers, spiritual leaders and policy makers. Her leadership has inspired a movement to democratize wellbeing that is actively organizing around issues of economic justice (Fight for 15), food system reform (Plate of the Union), civic engagement (voteWELL) and more. For more information about her work go to ctznwell.org and thecatalystcollective.com.
