Social Practice of Human Rights 2019 convenes to address high-risk threats that present themselves with unprecedented urgency. It will be our task to reinvigorate collaborative efforts with hope and vigor, building sustainable movements and disruptive methods even when it means, to quote Pope Francis, “going against the grain.” Join us!

Keynote speakers include:

  • Opal Tometi, co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter and a senior fellow at Black Alliance for Just Immigration.
  • Zeynep Tufekci, associate professor at the University of North Carolina and author of Twitter and Tear Gas: The Power and Fragility of Networked Protest.
  • Anand Giridharadas, author of the New York Times best-seller Winners Take All and editor-at-large for Time.
