Kerri Kelly (she/her) is the founder of CTZNWELL, a movement to mobilize the well-being community into a powerful force for change. Her work was sparked on 9/11, when she lost her fireman stepdad in the towers. She quickly discovered the power of mindfulness, not just as a tool for personal healing, but as a catalyst for collective change.
Since then, Kerri has worked passionately across communities to fight for justice and well-being. Kerri is recognized for her work in bridging personal practice with social change and politics. She’s been instrumental in translating the tools of well-being into practical application and social action in the public sector, working in collaboration with community organizers, spiritual leaders, and policy makers. Her leadership has inspired a movement to democratize well-being that is actively organizing around issues of economic justice (Fight for 15), food system reform (Plate of the Union), civic engagement (voteWELL), and more.
