Kerri Kelly

Kerri Kelly (she/her) is founder of CTZNWELL, an organization working to bring forth the practices and policies that democratize well-being for everyone.

She has been instrumental in translating the tools of well-being into practical application and social action in the public and private sector, working in collaboration with community organizations such as Movement Strategy Center, Make the Road NY, Strong Economy for All, and People’s Action Group. She has also worked with spiritual leaders such as Marianne Williamson, Rev angel Kyodo williams, Valarie Kaur, and Seane Corn, and with corporations like William Morris Entertainment, lululemon, and Wanderlust.

As a white, cisgender, able-bodied woman who is aware of her location and privilege, Kerri understands that dismantling white supremacy is central to our collective well-being and has been relentless in confronting her own whiteness and working with white folks to become active accomplices in disrupting systems of oppression.

Her most recent collaboration with race equity trainer Michelle Cassandra Johnson, called Race & Resilience, consults with community leaders and organizations around how to work across lines of difference to advance race equity and build community resilience.
