Renowned actress Patricia Arquette, who has arguably reached the peak of her career in her 50s, will give the kick-off keynote address at ENTITY’S 3rd annual Academy (www.EntityAcademy.com), to be held at its headquarters building in East LA/Boyle Heights.
Earlier this year Arquette won a trifecta of Best Actress awards for her role in Escape at Dannemora, taking home a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and Critic’s Choice Award.
“We feel super honored to have Patricia as our keynote,” said ENTITY founder-CEO Jennifer Schwab Wangers. “Patricia has accomplished something that has very rarely been done in Hollywood — to continue ascending as an actress even when over 50. It will be fascinating for our young women to hear her story about continuous professional growth as well as her many and varied philanthropic activities.”
Perhaps first and foremost on her long list of nonprofit work is her own creation, the GiveLove foundation (GiveLove.org), which has created a variety of ecological sanitation management, composting and disposal projects in several locations in need, including Haiti and Uganda.
As an outspoken advocate for women’s rights, Arquette also appeared in front of Congress in April to deliver a passionate plea for the Equal Rights Amendment, which would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex.
