A Conversation with David Keyes on Advancing Human Rights
Monday, November 3, 2014 06:00 PM to 07:45 PM
With a focus on empowering dissidents and providing them with the tools to succeed, David Keyes is exploring new strategies in the fight for human rights for those living under authoritarian regimes. How can social media be used to promote a more pluralistic world? How important is outside pressure?
David Keyes is the executive director of Advancing Human Rights. He was called a "pioneer in online activism" by The New York Times and the "'it' boy of human rights agitation" by Buzzfeed's Middle East correspondent.
Keyes is a frequent contributor to The Daily Beast and has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and appeared on CNN, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, and Bloomberg TV. In 2014, he launched Movements.org as a new crowd-sourcing human rights platform linking dissidents from dictatorships with people around the world with skills to help them.
Keyes will be in conversation with journalist Andrew Nagorski.
The format of the event will be as follows:
6:00PM - Doors open
6:15PM-7:15PM – Television taping of conversation (please arrive on time)
7:15PM-7:45PM – Reception
