“Onscreen, Ferrera’s characters are pretty phenomenal... But for all their Hollywood pluck, they still don’t shine quite as brightly... as the actress playing them. Of course, they’re not trying to save the nation.” The New York Times

“My identity is not an obstacle – it’s my superpower.” – America Ferrera

An award-winning actor, director, producer, activist – not necessarily in that order – Ferrera believes stories have the power to make people better and uses her voice to speak up for more humanity and justice in the world.

Best known for her role as Betty Suarez in the hit television comedy Ugly Betty, Ferrera also stars in Superstore and the documentary series America Divided. A longtime advocate for human and civil rights, she spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention on behalf of women’s rights and immigration and was a chair for the Artists’ Committee for the 2017 Women’s March on Washington. She has served as an artist ambassador for Save the

Children and is co-founder of Time’s Up and HARNESS, an organization connecting storytellers and activists to amplify the cultural narrative around social justice. Ferrera is helping to shape the world she wants to live in, and in this wide-ranging talk and moderated Q&A, she’ll inspire you to do that, too.
