David Estrin is the founder and CEO of Together We Remember, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering the next generation of leaders to make “never again” a reality. The grandson of four Holocaust survivors, David is on a mission to transform memory into action in order to end anti-Semitism, bigotry, and violence worldwide. Each April during Genocide Awareness Month he leads a global campaign that unites students, educators, and political leaders in countering violent hatred in their schools, communities, and on social media. David has shared the story of his family and his work with schools, universities, museums, faith centers, and other community-based institutions nationwide, including at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, city leaders in Charlottesville, VA, and the United Nations in New York City. By combining multimedia storytelling and solidarity activities, he strives to move audiences of all ages from inspiration to action.
After graduating from Duke University with a degree in Public Policy, David joined Accenture Strategy, where he advised Fortune 500 clients and the firm’s flagship corporate philanthropy program, Accenture Corporate Citizenship. In January 2017, unnerved by the rise of fear and hate at home and abroad, David left Accenture to pursue his global vision for Together We Remember full-time.
