Andre Banks Co-founder and Executive Director, All Out

Andre Banks has spent most of the last decade finding new ways to
harness the power of technology to build social movements in the US
and around the world. He is the co- founder and Executive Director of
All Out (www.allout.org), an unprecedented alliance between straight,
gay, lesbian, bi and trans people committed to building a movement for
equality, everywhere.

In just over a year, All Out has inspired close to one million people
in every country of the world to join the movement through online
campaigns, real world events and viral media. Andre is also the Senior
Advisor at Purpose (www.purpose. com) where he was formerly Partner

While at Purpose, Andre incubated All Out while leading strategy

eliminate nuclear weapons (Global Zero), as well as an innovative new
partnership in Brazil to build a new culture of civic participation in
Rio de Janeiro (Meu Rio). He was recently listed on Out Magazines 2012
