Keynote Speaker   |   Zainab Salbi 

We are excited to announce our 2019 keynote speaker is Zainab Salbi – international humanitarian, media host, and author. 

At the age of 23, Zainab Salbi founded Women for Women International, a grassroots humanitarian and development organization dedicated to serving women survivors of wars by offering support, tools, and access to life-changing skills to move from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency. The organization has since helped over 480,000 marginalized women rebuild their lives in 8 conflict zones. 

She is the host and creator of several TV shows, including #MeToo, Now What? on PBS and a new original series with YAHOO! NEWS, titled Through Her Eyes with Zainab Salbi, exploring contemporary issues from a female perspective. She frequently appears as a commentator on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." Zainab is also the author of numerous books, including her latest Freedom is an Inside Job: Owning Our Darkness and Our Light To Heal Ourselves and The World.

Zainab has been consistently identified as one of the women impacting the world, and Center for Community Solution is honored to have her as the keynote speaker our 20th Annual Tea & Tonic. Please join us on October 4, to hear Zainab share her journey and experiences helping women in crisis.
