Who We Are

Kindred accelerates social movements through the power of popular culture.

We bring communities of influential creators, platforms, and purpose‐driven brands and organizations together to find real solutions that address society’s most pressing issues.

We are committed to creating positive social impact and making the world a better place.

Initial areas the Kindred Community will be tackling and impacting in year one:

ADDICTION & THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC

CLIMATE CHANGE & SUSTAINABILITY

CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

MENTAL HEALTH

GUN VIOLENCE

SEXUAL HARASSMENT & ASSAULT

VOTER RIGHTS

What We Do

Convene. Converse. Create.

Change is not a top‐down endeavor. Change begins with people, and together we can make more of an impact than we can as individuals.

The Kindred Community will actively participate in curated events and experiences called Quests and Gatherings throughout the year, culminating in our first annual flagship event, Kindred 2020.

FAQs

What is Kindred?

Kindred accelerates social movements through the power of popular culture. We foster and bring together communities of influential creators, social media platforms, purpose-driven brands, and non-profit organizations to help tackle some of society’s most pressing issues.

Okay, cool, but what does that really mean?

Expressing outrage at the problems seems to have become step one these days. Now comes the harder part: stoking the constructive positive energy that leads to viable solutions. Kindred’s events provide the framework for coming together to do the work by convening, conversing, and creating.

  • Convention: Nearly every major social movement has thrived in shared, physical gathering places
  • Conversation: We need to make it safer and easier to participate in difficult dialogues
  • Creation: Our communities will use their vast skills and resources to engage audiences with content that stimulates necessary dialogues

At Kindred’s Quests, we will convene to gain inspiration from one another and think critically about how to address societal challenges; we will converse with experts, nonprofits, and each other about the best ways to catalyze, accelerate, and amplify the next generations of social movements; and we will create narratives that will engage millions of people in ways previous generations could only dream of. Change is not a top-down endeavor. Change begins with people, and together we can make more of an impact than we can as individuals.

That sounds nice. Is there an Annual Event?

Yes! Our flagship event will be Kindred 2020 in San Diego on May 11-13. We will gather more than 2,000 Kindred Community members (creators, communicators, brands, platforms, nonprofits, and experts) together to celebrate their accomplishments and further engage in initiatives developed through Kindred’s Quests. Participants will hear inspiring stories, exchange ideas with and learn from their peers, participate in exclusive and unique experiences, and forge new relationships with organizations, brands, and platforms eager to move society forward through collaboration.

So what issues are you tackling in your first year?

There is a seemingly endless list of societal challenges that require attention, and we will take our cues from the community on the issues that matter most. But we have to start somewhere. The key issues that will kick off our Quests are: ending the mental health stigma, climate change and sustainability, diversity and inclusion, sexual harassment and assault, gun violence, addiction and the opioid epidemic, and criminal justice reform.

Great! How do I get involved?
