‘Social Justice Leaders’ Webinar Series at Harvard’s Carr Center
This year I’m excited to be a fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, a research center of the Harvard Kennedy School. Given the challenges of COVID-19, my fellowship is a remote one but I am looking forward to leading a series of important online conversations about social justice–open to the Harvard community and beyond.
Please join me on Friday, October 2nd from 1-2pm EST for my new webinar series on ‘Social Justice Leaders,’ which features social justice leaders working at the local, national, and international level. The series highlights the work of leaders of color who are actively challenging racism and advancing human rights. The first guest was Laura Mae Lindo, a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in the 2018.
I’m pleased to announce that the next guest is Jurema Werneck, a physician and the Director of Amnesty International Brazil. She is also the founder of the NGO Criola, which prioritizes Black women´s health, economic development, human rights, political action and dialogue, the dissemination of information, and publications. She has more than 20 years of experience working in the field of human rights with social and activism movements, on the issues of race, gender identity, sexual orientation as well as developing education initiatives, campaigns, and communications. Jurema is also a board advisor at Global Fund for Women and the United Nations Population Fund.
