April Reign

headshot of April Reign

April practiced law for over 15 years, but her life took an unexpected turn when the lack of people of color in the 2015 Oscars nominations compelled her to tweet a now-famous hashtag: #OscarsSoWhite. April is a sought-after advocate, consultant, and interviewer on the representation of all marginalized communities in the arts, tech and entertainment. Reign capitalizes on her experience, using her voice to spark conversations and help structure ways to turn dialogue into action.
