Why We Celebrate Changemakers

Moontower Means Community

The world’s only remaining Moontowers cast light across Austin, Texas where they’ve become an iconic symbol of community gathering.

Austin is for Changemakers

Austin’s community-centered ethos cultivates changemakers – leaders creating a more equitable landscape for all.

Moving Forward Together

Notley convenes changemakers across for-profit and nonprofit industries to maximize impact and support systemic change.

Join Us Under the Moontower

The Moontower Ball will serve as a beacon to honor
changemakers and illuminate our community’s successes.

“When we take time to highlight changemakers, we show the world that working toward progress deserves a spotlight.”

2023 Keynote Speaker:
Amanda Nguyen

Founder of Rise, 2019 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and 2022 TIME Woman of the Year

Amanda’s 2021 viral video ignited a wave of collective action in the anti-Asian hate movement. She made history by drafting and unanimously passing both the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights through the United States Congress and the Survivors’ Resolution through the United Nations General Assembly. Amanda’s directorial debut, Everything I Ever Wanted To Tell My Daughter About Men, won Best Feature at the 2022 Cannes Independent Film Festival.
