Speakers List Sorted Geographically

Though this list is sorted by state, speakers can use remote technology such as Zoom to interact with classes and groups regardless of location. See Speakers for more information and contact information for our speaking coordinator.

The Movement veterans listed here are available for speaking engagements and to answer email queries from students.
