HLN Steering Committee 

We have run statewide and national political campaigns, led non-profit operations, advised and crafted global policy, and managed million- dollar projects. Notably, we are former Presidential Appointees, heads of record labels to Grammy award-winning artists and have helped curate art and culture at public institutions including the Embassy of Haiti. Our experiences mirror that of the members of the network.
