Josette Souza - Keynote Speaker


Josette Souza is the Program Director at Everyday Feminism. She’s a working-class, Afro-latinx, Josette Souzafirst-generation college graduate hailing from semi-rural central Florida. After completing her B.A. in Africana Studies at Brown University in 2014, she worked for the Latinegr@s Project as a Digital and Social Media Intern, for Africa Educates as the Social Media Coordinator, and taught English in Guanajuato, Mexico (where she soaked up the sun, at her weight in avocados, and made strides towards her goal of making friends with the Zapatistas). Her favorite things in the world are Black liberation, intersectional feminism, and offering her condolences to the people who failed to bring her down by telling her that getting a degree in Africana Studies would mean never getting a good job.
