Macklemore & Doug Baldwin

Some activists need to use blow horns, but others are fortunate enough to already have the world’s attention. Colin Kaepernick, for example, showed how a single act -- and the commitment to repeat it -- can change the conversation. But how does one turn fame into societal gain? Prominent social justice activist and author DeRay McKesson will lead a conversation with hip-hop artist Macklemore and Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin about how the two socially active figures choose a cause, make positive change, and keep working through it all. 

This session sponsored by Alaska Airlines.
