We Are United, presented by Women United, is our signature event to fund ending children’s hunger initiatives, such as WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks and Breakfast in the Classroom, that ensure every child is well nourished and ready to learn.


We are thrilled to present Lisa Ling as our 2019 keynote speaker. Lisa is the executive producer and host of This is Life on CNN. For five seasons prior, Ling executive produced and hosted Our America on OWN: the Oprah Winfrey Network. She is the co-author of Mother, Daughter, Sister, Bride: Rituals of Womanhood and Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity in North Korea and the Other's Fight to Bring Her Home, which she penned with her sister, Laura. 


As the former field correspondent for The Oprah Winfrey Show and contributor to ABC News' Nightline and National Geographic's Explorer, Ling has reported from dozens of countries, covering stories that are too often ignored. She has profiled Americans living beneath the poverty line for the first time.
