Jack Knoxville is an Afro-Latino Trans Activist, Digital Organizer, and Keynote Speaker.
In 2015, Jack became the first trans-man to run for political office in the Southern United States after running for Mayor in Knoxville, TN. Shortly after his campaign, Jack founded Trans Empowerment Project, a 501c3 focused on empowering trans and gender non conforming individuals across the country. Jack got his start in community organizing as an activist in 2002 when he started his first non-profit, Free2Be, in response to legislative attacks against the LGBTQ community in the south. Jack has dedicated his career to helping others break through oppressive barriers to (re)claim their power.
During his down time, Jack enjoys traveling with his family, exploring energy work and healing, creating art & music, and reading.
