Speaker Series - The Hope and Human Rights Series

Artists for Human Rights (AFHR) has been working hand-in-hand with effective human rights advocates and leading organizations worldwide in getting our human rights message out. Our quarterly Hope and Human Rights Speakers Series is reaching leading artists, business leaders and activists in the heart of the entertainment and media industries. With these highly successful events, we are driving the message home, raising awareness and inspiring action to eradicate human rights abuses by broadcasting our message around the globe.

Our speaker series features the leading authorities on the most pressing human rights issues facing the world today. Our guest lecturers include noted authors, activits, educators, and Nobel Laureates, and their accomplishments have garnered accolades that include a Peabody Award, an Emmy Award, a Pulitzer Prize nomination, and the Nobel Peace Prize. All are on the front lines in the battle for human rights and have galvanized AFHR audiences with their insightful and motivating lectures, raising awareness of recurring abuses, what is being done to stop them and what we can all do to help.
