Keynote Speaker: Ms. Rachel Brown, a Simon-Skjodt Center Genocide Prevention Fellow at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2014. She used her fellowship to conceptualize and author the Defusing Hate guide and workbooks, which she now draws from to provide technical support to organizations and assess new opportunities for pilot projects.

Prior to her fellowship. Rachel was the CEO of Sisini Amani-Kenya, a Kenyan MGO that she had founded to pioneer new strategies for building local capacity in peace-building and civic engagement, most notably through the creation of a text-messaging model and platform to support local community efforts. She has also worked as a tenant organizer in Boston, Massachusetts, and as a consultant with organizations using technology for social impact, including Ushahidi, Internews, and Phandeeyar.
