This is the first conference that I have been to that truly has an NGen voice. We are participating in sessions and speaking up about issues that are important in the sector including the work/life balance issue, creating and maintaining social movements, reaching out through social media, and so much more! And we are meeting key leaders in the NP sector -- people that are so amazing and have built the sector. Tonight IS honored Robert Greenstein, Founder and Executive Director of Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. He is responsible for creating the Earned Income Tax Credit and providing improvements to help low-income families with food stamps, TANF and more!

Trista Harris -- New Voices of Philanthropy
