About this Event

In this event, St. Francis College President Miguel Martinez-Saenz will engage Paul O’Brien, the new Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, in a discussion on the central themes of his new book, “Power Switch: How We Can Reverse Extreme Inequality,” and the challenges to human rights nationally and globally and what practical action steps activists can take to confront power and wealth inequalities as we emerge from this pandemic. With billionaires able to decide the fate of nations, private corporations more powerful and less accountable than ever, and political autocrats around the world shaking our confidence in democratic institutions, power resides in all the wrong places. And so, our world is in crisis. In such moments, activists find opportunities. Not to restore the pre-crises order, but to transform it. Paul O'Brien will argue that progressive activists may never have a better opportunity to rewrite economic rules, systems and outcomes in favor of those who don't have enough.

Drawing on his recently published book, “Power Switch,” he will offer practical action steps for activists who want to drive a power switch that overcomes extreme inequalities in our world.

Reversing inequality is the ultimate fight for human rights and dignity for all.
