NEXT-GEN POLITICS & SOCIAL IMPACT

 

Malia is a next-gen social impact strategist. She helps brands and nonprofits reimagine how they communicate their impact to the young Americans who now compose the largest consumer group and the largest block of eligible voters. 

Malia believes that social impact is more powerful than ever. As Millennials and Gen Z come of age, they care just as much about doing good as being cool. In the past, brands and organizations had to choose: create an impact initiative to support a great cause or launch a cool ad campaign. Malia is passionate about helping companies and organizations create programs that do both. 

Through her nonprofit, Defiant Network, Malia is building a national network of the next generation of civic leaders. She works side-by-side with progressive organizations on issues like Net Neutrality, DACA, Mass Incarceration and Women’s Rights. 

Malia lives and works in New York City.
