I’m Emily Pasnak-Lapchick, an activist passionate about co-powering with people like you to create social change. Currently, I’m honing my skills by pursuing a Masters of Arts in Social Innovation at the University of San Diego. For the past six years, I built and managed the End Trafficking project at UNICEF USA, leading a national awareness and advocacy campaign to end child trafficking reaching nearly 60,000 people each year.
I believe success is only achieved with intersectionality. I am skilled at identifying the unique strengths of individuals, supporting strong leaders who are the experts of their narratives, and bringing people together around a common cause.
I frequently travel and speak at conferences, special events, and schools on topics related to human rights. Learn more about my key speaking events here.
When I’m not trying to change the world and the way you think, I’m cooking up delicious vegetarian recipes, seeking out social enterprises, and listening to jazz influencers like Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.
I love connecting with people to figure out how we can work together. If you feel the same way, contact me below!
“I think the importance of doing activist work is precisely because it allows you to give back and to consider yourself not as a single individual who may have achieved whatever but to be a part of an ongoing historical movement.”
– Angela Davis
