We are excited to have Sixto Cancel as our keynote speaker. Sixto is the Founder and CEO of Think of Us, a national nonprofit organization that empowers youth in foster care to make their voices heard in improving care. Having spent his childhood and adolescence in foster care, Sixto Cancel had an inside look at the foster care system and, while still in care, began his efforts to transform the system to better meet the needs of children and youth.
