Sheena Meade, CEO of the Clean Slate Initiative and a leader within the National Basketball Social Justice Coalition's Criminal Justice efforts. She was in SLC over the weekend for the 2023 NBA All-Star Weekend festivities to help further bi-partisan "second chance" social justice reform to make criminal record expungement more accessible and less politically divisive, helping to ensure that past mistakes are no longer a life sentence to poverty and other systemic marginalization.

As a founder and CEO of three tech companies over the course of his business career, Gruner wanted to focus not on their partisan politics but instead on economic triumphs, policy accomplishments and each President’s lasting impact on the American landscape over the Century.

    • a 200-page economics history from Adam Smith to Modern Monetary Theory
