Stay tuned for news about upcoming Pollen events.

It’s often said that the arc of history bends toward justice — but it’s less often that we talk about who actually does the bending. The hard work of changing our collective story for the better starts with people power — movements and those who build and support them. Pollen Live brought together leaders deeply embedded in the work of bringing people together — often across lines of difference — to fight for equity, empathy, and our shared humanity.
