Presenter: Jodi Pharr
“I’m passionate about creating sustainable communities where everyone’s voice is heard — a place where people are conscious of their experience and willing to hear about another’s so that social services can be more effective — schools are achieving, businesses are thriving and both police and citizens feel safe.”
