Event description

Description

Join us for a stirring conversation about the challenging contexts in which we seek to build a more just, gender equitable and sustainable world -- and some of the pathways for change. A lineup of powerful speakers will spark the conversation, followed by an interactive, talk-show style discussion with all willing participants.

The Speakers:

Opal Tometi, Co-founder of Black Lives Matter and Executive Director of Black Alliance for Just Immigration, will reflect on the immigration crisis and what it tells us about race and racism in this country. She'll talk about the impact of the Movement for Black Lives on addressing the core systemic injustices in America.

Anthony Rogers-Wright, Deputy Director of Regenerate Nebraska and Environmental Justice advocate, will speak about the climate justice movement in the US and reflect on the impact of the Trump administration’s roll back on environmental protections, the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, and the growing resistance.

Nomiki Konst, Investigative Reporter and Founder of The Accountability Project, will speak about the challenges and opportunities for women to re-shape politics in this country, giving her take on the state of the Democratic party, the recent primary contests and any forecasts for the mid-terms.

Adriano Campolina, Secretary General of ActionAid International, will reflect on similar trends he sees emerging in other parts of the world and how organized society is responding.
