Description

Editor's note: This event, originally scheduled for June 19, has been rescheduled for July 10.

We reflect on the way citizens can use protest, activism, and organizing to effectively—and safely—make their voices heard, hold leaders accountable, and make real change happen. As protesters across the country continue to demand an end to racial injustice and police violence, as the coronavirus pandemic persists, and as the U.S. heads into one of the most contentious and high-stakes presidential elections in recent history, join the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and the SNF Agora Institute for a discussion on how, amid multiple crises, people can come together to navigate this historic moment.

Speakers:

  • Kanisha Bond, assistant professor of political science at Binghamton University
  • Filipe Campante, vice dean for education and academic affairs at SAIS and the Bloomberg distinguished associate professor of international economics
  • Erica Chenoweth, professor in human rights and international affairs at Harvard Kennedy School and a professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies at Harvard University
  • Hahrie Han (moderator), professor of political science at Johns Hopkins and director of the SNF Agora Institute
