2016 Best Nonprofit Conference

frank2016. Hope you made it!

You know the one: That moment you became so outraged, you had to take action. That moment you saw the way forward. That moment you decided to speak up for someone else. That moment you believed you could make a difference. That moment you realized that you were unfit for other work. That moment you won. At frank2016, we celebrated the moments that define us as change makers.
