Zeitz is the initiator of a new movement building platform called #unify, that aims to catalyze a transformation to new social, economic, and political systems with “love at the center” for our collective repair, justice, and peace. During 2020-23, Zeitz co-founded the Brave Movement and Keep Kids Safe, movements committed to ending childhood sexual violence, driven by his lived-experience as a survivor of familial childhood sexual violence at the hands of his father.

Previously, he founded and served as the Executive Director of the Global AIDS Alliance from 2000-2011 that helped generate the political will to launch and sustain the PEPFAR and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria.
