The theme of the Activists Conference this year is Brave: Human Rights Defenders

Our keynote speaker will be Boniface Massah, Director of the Association of People with Albinism in Malawi who will reflect on his experiences as a human rights defender in Malawi.

We will also be joined by Felix Jakens, Head of Priority Campaigns & Individuals at Risk at Amnesty International: UK who will present the new campaign and discuss the featured cases.
