Born “out of the rib” of DoSomething.org, Crisis Text Line is an innovative company and technology platform that provides free, 24/7 support to people in crisis via text message. By putting human and automated processes to work to connect with (and calm) humans in need, Crisis Text Line is changing lives in every area code in the U.S.

In this fireside chat, Crisis Text Line CEO Nancy Lublin will share Crisis Text Line’s founding story and explore how the company is using a combination of human compassion and strategy alongside AI technology to scale its ability to help thousands of Americans in crisis each and every day.
