Fifth International Human Rights Lecture

March 6, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Born in Durban, South Africa, Naidoo’s life-long campaign for social justice stemmed from his early involvement in South Africa’s anti-apartheid protests. In post-apartheid South Africa, Kumi Naidoo joined the African National Congress where he was a force for change in adult literacy campaigns – empowering historically and systematically disenfranchised communities to seek justice, equality and representation.

As a leader in civil society, Naidoo has campaigned for environmental justice, women’s and human rights, advocating these causes as inextricably inter-connected, using his roles in Greenpeace International, Amnesty International and with Africans Rising for justice, peace and dignity.

The lecture will be followed by a discussion between Kumi Naidoo and Mary Robinson, facilitated by journalist Olivia O’Leary.
