Afternoon Keynote:

  Tahir Duckett is the Founder and Executive Director of ReThink, an organization dedicated to preventing sexual violence before it starts, with a particular focus on adolescent boys. An expert facilitator and organizer, Tahir identifies potential leaders and helps them build and practice the skills necessary to establish a culture of consent, empathy, and emotional awareness among adolescents in their communities. This work also involves helping these leaders to identify and interrupt power dynamics around race, sex, gender identity, orientation, and class that undermine the practice of consent.

He has worked as an organizer all over the country for a decade and a half, most recently directing the AFL-CIO's young worker program while graduating magna cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center. He also holds degrees in Political Science and Religion from Emory University.
