Kathy Najimy, 2019 Keynote Speaker

Award-Winning Actor & “Social Action Hero”

Best known for her work in more than 30 films (including the blockbusters Sister Act, Hocus Pocus and Rat Race), as the voice of Peggy Hill on King of the Hill, and her current roles on VEEP, Younger, and Graves; Kathy Najimy is also a celebrity advocate on the frontline of a myriad of progressive social causes, including #MeToo and Time’s Up. Outspoken, energizing and inspirational, Najimy combines her acting and talents with a passionate commitment to equality, women’s leadership and LGBTQ rights.

As the Ms. Magazine Woman of the Year, Najimy has been called a “social action hero.” She credits her drive to her strong desire to see all living things treated equitably. Najimy has also led the way for AIDS activism for 30 years and has been honored for her work for women and girls’ rights and self-esteem, reproductive rights and students’ rights.

Warm, delightful, human, humorous and with refreshing candor, Kathy Najimy encourages audiences to make a difference in the world. “We are all equal, connected by our sense of common humanity, and able to achieve great things together.”
