Standing Strong Against Attacks on Human Rights (Oct. 16, 2019)

In many parts of the world, repression is on the rise and freedom on the decline. But brave human rights defenders continue to fight for equality and fair treatment for all. Hear what participants in our Human Rights Defenders Forum have to say about the state of human rights across the globe. Learn what they’re doing to protect and promote these rights – and how you, too, can be a defender.

Moderator:
- Kristi York Wooten, freelance journalist and contributor to The Economist, The Atlantic, and many other publications.

Panelists:
- Memory Bandera of Zimbabwe, director of programs and administration for the East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project and co-founder of the Girl Child Network Zimbabwe and Uganda.
- Hafida Benchehida, Algerian senator and a founding member of both the Algerian Women's Parliamentarian Network and the Arab Women's Parliamentarian Network.
- Claudia Virginia Samayoa, human rights activist and founder of Unidad de Protección a Defensoras y Defensores de Derechos Humanos in Guatemala.

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
