2014 Conference Keynote Address:
The Two Faces of Hunger: Ensuring Equitable Food Access for All
2014 Conference Keynote Speaker:
Councilwoman Lea Webb is an award-winning activist, working to bridge the gap between local and state government to bring about positive change in her community. Her greatest achievement includes being the first-and-youngest African American representative on the Binghamton City Council. 


She is the Founder and Managing Principal at Webb Consulting. Ms. Webb has over 15 years of experience as a community organizer working on issues such as food justice, health disparities, quality education, and green jobs to name a few. She has worked on various projects that empower community residents, such as creating and implementing Anti-Racism/Racial Justice Trainings, the Binghamton Neighborhood Assemblies Project (BNAP).


She was recognized as one of tomorrow’s leaders by "O" Oprah magazine and the White House Project, and was honored with the President’s Award by the Broome-Tioga NAACP for her significant contributions to her community. 


Ms. Webb works with numerous local and national community organizations; The Young Elected Officials Network, The Binghamton Local Development Corporation, Broome County Urban League, Citizen Action of NY, and the Alliance for Quality Education.


Councilwoman Webb truly believes in the power of the collective. Her commitment to change and exemplary leadership is remarkable. Her goal is to inspire others to lead, break through boundaries, and ensure equitable access to the quality of life that we ALL deserve.  

The 2013 Annual Agency Conference was a big success, one of the best ever!
