Jamila Raqib: Building People-Power - Lessons from Global Movements
ANNUAL UCSC RIGHT LIVELIHOOD LECTURE
As an unprecedented number of people across the world are mobilizing to face a range of crises, from racial injustice to rising authoritarianism to the climate crisis, it’s more important now than ever to understand the theory and history behind how ordinary people wield power and achieve change in their societies. Join Jamila Raqib in conversation with prof. Elizabeth Beaumont for a discussion focused on the major trends in the field today, the importance of strategic nonviolent action in democracies, and her insights from twenty years of working with activists on every continent.
