Speaker bios:

Savannah Skyler is a lesbian questioning Mormon. She is known for coming out in her Mormon congregation and subsequently having her mic shut off. Little did they know their silencing would just boost her voice ten fold, the story being told around the world with millions of views and hundreds of news stories. Since that day Savannah has been featured in several documentaries and podcasts. She has won Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation award for humanitarian aid. She was recognized for her bravery by Provo Pride, the Human Rights Campaign, LoveLoud, and on the Ellen Show. Savannah aims to major in Polical Science with an emphasis on international affairs after high school.

Sean Escobar was a lifelong member of the Mormon Church who exposed Sterling Van Wagenen, a prominent member of the church, as a sex abuser. His exposure led to the discovery of a second victim and to the arrest and conviction of Van Wagenen.

===================================================

The Truth & Transparency Foundation (TTF) is a non profit newsroom founded on the belief that increased transparency results in fewer untruths, less corruption, and less abuse within religious institutions. The organization was originally founded to provide sources and whistle-blowers the technical ability to anonymously submit sensitive documents for use by professional and citizen journalists for starting and expanding news reporting, public commentary, and criticism related to various religious organizations. It’s mission has since expanded to contribute to said news reporting.

The TTF was founded by Ryan McKnight and Ethan Gregory Dodge. It has contributed to constructive commentary related to religion in various news outlets around the world including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Independent, NPR, ABC News, CBS News, Aljazeera, Slate, Gizmodo, and many other major and independent outlets.
