Kathy LeMay, 2020 ARD Keynot Speaker

Announcing the 2020 Ann Richards Dinner Keynote Speaker

February 11, 2020

We’re depending on you this year. Our country depends on you. No matter who you are, you can help defeat Trump, repair our country, and build something better. No matter where you are, 2020 is waiting for you to be part of the change we desperately need.

That’s why we’re proud to announce that our 2020 Ann Richards Dinner keynote speaker will be Kathy LeMay, a woman who has dedicated her life to empowering others to change the world.

Kathy began changing the world at 14 by launching an anti-apartheid campaign in her small Massachusetts mill town. This created a lot of attention in her rural community, and she recalls her mother’s nervous boss saying, “Will your daughter be appearing in the newspaper as a regular thing?” Kathy’s mother’s reply: “With any luck, absolutely yes.”

Since then Kathy has traveled the United States and the world listening to, learning from, and raising money for those who’ve survived war, genocide, gender-based violence and climate-induced disasters.

Kathy has led international women’s human-rights organizations, become a sought-after public speaker, a published author, and served as adviser to some of the world’s most renowned philanthropists. Wherever she goes, her message is that we need to “Empower ourselves so that we can empower others.”

We’re so excited to have Kathy as our 2020 Ann Richards Dinner keynote speaker as we prepare to empower our community to change Collin County, Texas, our ntxdp.cc/ardticketshttps://www.collindemocrats.org/2020-ard-keynote-speaker/ation, and the world.
