About Our Speaker

Meet Frank Velásquez Jr.: Storyteller Extraordinaire, Social Justice Warrior, and Community Connector! With a heart as big as his vision, Frank dances on the frontlines of change, armed with an unshakeable belief in racial and gender equity. Whether he’s dropping knowledge on the conference stage or storytelling behind the scenes, Frank’s passion for social justice is as infectious as his smile. And he’s connecting us through our stories to weave a beautiful tapestry made from the folks in our communities.

As Founder of 4 Da Hood and the mastermind behind the Ascending Leaders in Color fellowship program, he’s forging paths for peeps of color to lead with authenticity, courage, and joy! Because for Frank, advancing equity isn’t just a job—it’s a movement towards building generational wealth for communities of color to thrive!
