Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer's Appointee and Executive Director of Just Tell Vivian Farmery will be the Keynote Speaker at the event.

Sponsorship packages range from $250-$1,000, and tickets are $125. 

The Brooklyn based organization, UCanspeakup, was started by 12 year old author Zykeya McLeod (pictured) after she wrote her first book, An Inner Child Speaks, as a class assignment. 

The group's goal is to raise over $1 Billion dollars over the next ten years to provide scholarships for 10 thousand children.
