The 24 speakers and 100-plus attendees included farmworkers, farmers, activists, artists, students, professors, filmmakers, and entrepreneurs. The live webcast was watched by groups all around the country; the 23 videos are available on YouTube via the links below.

WHAT IS TEDX?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFruitvale, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFruitvale event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
