What is TED?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nancdan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi OkonjoIweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.

What is TEDx? x = Independently Organized Event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations).

What is TEDxCrenshaw?

A community-organized TED-like event designed to spread ideas, spark conversation, and address changes affecting South Los Angeles. TEDxCrenshaw is an independently organized local group compromised of passionate volunteers who are dedicated to ideas worth spreading.

The theme 20/20 vision represents where we want to be as a community. When you drive down South LA streets, how many injustices do you see? Too many. We want to make those injustices clear and encourage participation in growing solutions.
