The Movemeant Foundation sits close to my heart. Everyday when I put my feet to the floor, it’s not my husband, my son, or anyone else I go to work for (well, you know..

On behalf of the team at Movemeant Foundation, it is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our Vice President, Kelly Hurley. She was 31 years old. Many of you knew Kelly as a vibrant and unique personality; a steadfast champion of social activism. This included everything from her work in women's self-acceptance and body-positivity at Movement Foundation, to sparking engaging political dialogue on women's rights, LGBTQ, and more.
