This year's featured speaker will be Catherine Davis, author of The Fight for Life and Taking It to the Street.

A public speaker and civil rights champion, she is a magna cum laude graduate of Tufts University and attended the University of Bridgeport School of Law.
Early in 2010, she partnered with The Radiance Foundation to launch one of the most news-generating campaigns ever, the "Endangered Species" billboard/web campaign. Davis was featured in numerous television, radio and newspaper features including The NY Times, CNN, MSNBC, ABC World News, NPR and throughout the blogosphere.
