It’s no accident that comics and geek culture increasingly feature the perspectives of people of color, LGBTQ, women, people with disabilities and more. Our panelists help lead this change through education, advocacy and community building. Nonprofit organizations are also increasingly looking at the role comics and fan spaces play in shaping our society. Creators are partnering with nonprofits and public institutions to publish, promote and recognize comics and geek culture that makes a difference. If you believe that comics are for everyone and pop culture can make a better world, join us!

Panelists include The Nerds of Color Lion Forge Netroots Nation GLAAD The Opportunity Agenda.
