Keynote Speaker

Tobias Tubbs

Tobias Tubbs dedicated his life to uplifting the disenfranchised by offering an opportunity to heal and grow through meaningful work. He is the founder of several community initiatives, including Huma House and Angel City Urban Farms, which provide inner city communities a means of spiritual healing and personal upliftment through farming and gardening.

Tubbs served 28 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. During his incarceration, he used this time to reconnect with his Muslim faith and to follow the prophetic example of gratitude despite the many hardships he faced. Since his release in October 2018, Tubbs has devoted his life to projects such as Words Uncaged, which provides important services such as prison prevention, re-entry, and transitioning programs through art and education programs.

To learn more about Tubbs’ extraordinary story, please listen to his conversation with President Hamza Yusuf.
