“Remember that moment that changed everything? The moment that triggered you to move from accepting the status quo to relentlessly fighting for what you believed in?”

So introduces the next TEDxPhiladelphia discussion-based salon event theme: “Crossover Moments: From Ordinary People to Extraordinary Leaders.”

The featured speaker will be Movita Johnson-Harrell, District Attorney Larry Krasner’s interim supervisor of victim services and the founder of the anti-violence-focused CHARLES Foundation, named for a murdered son.
