Jeannine LaRue, an inspiring and engaging public speaker, has delivered keynote addresses, moderated panelists, and served as mistress of ceremonies on college campuses, business symposia, national conferences, and political conventions. Jeannine combines her own personal life stories with skills she’s developed in her corporate, governmental, and political careers over the last 40 years.
On Saturday, October 14th, Jeannine LaRue stirred up a packed-filled room of attendees at the New Brunswick, NJ’s 44th Annual NAACP Freedom Fund luncheon. This event, held less than a month from the election of a new Governor for New Jersey, seemed like the opportune time to address the urgency for voting to retain the rights achieved over the last several decades. This energized crowd took to heart the instructive narrative Jeannine left in the room as their keynote speaker…Hold Steadfast and Immovable!!!
The economic disparities in American Urban communities was one of several topics discussed during 'A tale of Two Cities' at Newark's Bethany Baptist Church.

“Jeannine LaRue has a combination of attributes I have seen in no one else in all my decades in the media, government and politics. She has the sharpest strategic mind, extraordinary wisdom, the sturdiest shoulder and an infectious inspirational determination. Together, these traits of Jeannine’s make a dramatic difference for you and your organization from the day you meet her. I can tell you for certain, we would not have passed marriage equality in the New Jersey legislature without Jeannine. Nor would Garden State Equality have led the way for 216 new laws in the last 10 years. Jeannine’s counsel has meant that much to me. I would walk on coals for Jeannine LaRue, and I guarantee you will, too.”
