“AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez is a funny, personable, and intelligent communicator who brings a unique voice to conversations around justice and inclusion that is at once well-informed and approachable. Her presence is both commanding and disarming, and she has influenced my own thinking (and action!) in more ways than I can count. I recommend her as a speaker, advisor, panelist, or contributor for your next event.” – Rachel Held Evans, author & speaker.
