  • Crisis intervention leader


Nancy Lublin is CEO of Crisis Text Line (CLT), the first 24-hour free texting hotline for teens in distress. Every day, volunteer staff swap thousands of text messages with people in crisis and actively intervene to help save lives. Lublin hopes to expand capacity to 100,000 texts per day.

In October 2015, she stepped down as CEO of DoSomething.org, which facilitates user-led campaigns, to focus all of her energy on CTL, and was named among Fortune magazine’s World’s 50 Greatest Leaders in 2014.
