Join us for our first-ever virtual TEDxMileHigh fundraising event, The Ripple Effect!
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2020
6:30 - 8:00PM X VIRTUAL
Like a drop in the ocean spreading across the sea, the most powerful things in our lives cannot be measured by a single person, action, or event, but by The Ripple Effect set off in motion.
The Ripple Effect Begins With You
Celebrate the future of ideas, inspiration, and civic engagement. Our first-ever fundraising event is built upon the ripples of generosity from our community; each gift emanates a positive effect and helps guarantee our programs for the future. Together, we will celebrate the power of TEDxMileHigh!
The event is free to attend. All proceeds raised will benefit TEDxMileHigh.
The Ripple Effect will feature extraordinary talent, and testimonials by popular TED speakers, Theo E.J. Wilson, and Paula Stone Williams. Participate in the silent and live auction, paddle raiser, and, most of all, have fun!
Theo E.J. Wilson
Theo E.J. Wilson (aka Lucifury) is a founding member of the Denver Slam Nuba team, which won the National Poetry Slam in 2011. He began his speaking career in the N.A.A.C.P. at the age of 15 and has always had a passion for social justice. Wilson is Executive Director of Shop Talk Live, Inc., an organization that uses the barbershop as a staging ground for community dialogue and healing. In 2017, he published his first book, The Law of Action. His TEDxMileHigh talk, “A black man goes undercover in the alt-right,” has over 10 million views online.
Paula Stone Williams
The Reverend Dr. Paula Stone Williams knows the truth will set you free, but only after it upends your carefully constructed narrative. Her devotion to authenticity caused her to leave her comfort zone as a nationally known religious leader and follow her heart to transition from Paul to Paula. She lost all of her jobs and most of her friends. Williams also discovered the massive differences between life as a male and as a female in America.
Williams is the pastor of preaching and worship at Left Hand Church in Longmont, Colorado, a pastoral counselor with RLT Pathways and a sought-after speaker to corporations, government agencies, universities, and religious institutions on issues of gender equity and LGBTQ advocacy. She has been featured in the New York Times, the Denver Post, New Scientist, Radio New Zealand, Colorado Public Radio and The Huffington Post. Her TEDxMileHigh talk on gender equity has had more than one million views.
