At only 23 years old, Benjamin O'Keefe is already taking the world by storm as a speaker, Internet personality, and leader in progressive politics.

Ben gained international acclaim after beginning a global movement against the clothing company Abercrombie & Fitch and their company's size-based discrimination, and went on to launch body positive campaigns with some of the largest clothing and beauty companies in the world. Since then, he has continued advocating to lift up the voices of marginalized communities and create systemic change. Benjamin currently works as the Social and Cultural producer at MoveOn.org, the largest progressive non-profit in America, where he is the youngest employee ever.

Ben currently hosts the popular MoveOn webseries "The O'Keefe Brief", is an MTV News guest host, and writer for MTV's Decoded. He has appeared on television such as Good Morning America, MSNBC, CNN, and BBC World News, and is also a frequent contributor to some of the world's leading and largest publications, recently The Guardian, Ebony Magazine, Upworthy, and others.

Ben is passionate about starting conversations, especially with young people, about the power of our voices to create change in our lives and in the lives of others.

Ben is writing his first book, 'CinderFELLA: A Rags to Richest Stories'. When not on a set or traveling to speaking engagements you'll find Ben out somewhere making people laugh.
