Jimmy And Bernie- A Conference NOT To Miss

in Win by


Oh, this is something you shouldn’t miss. Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will be sitting down for a conversation with former President Jimmy Carter on the evening of May 8. It will be live streamed on Carter’s page, Carter Center.

The main focus of the talk will be on the “important human rights issues”. For sure this is going to be lively. Unfortunately, it is not open to the public, the exchange will start at 6:20pm on Monday evening. It will be a highlight of the first day of Carter Center’s annual Human Rights Defender Forum.

For more information about the talk, visit Carter Center’s website here.

More than 70 activists, peacemakers, and community leaders from 31 countries will come together May 8-9 for the Carter Center’s annual Human Rights Defenders Forum to discuss strategies for protecting human rights in the wake of rising authoritarianism.

Freedom from Fear: Securing Rights in Challenging Times” will shine a spotlight on some of the obstacles human rights defenders are facing as governments in many countries clamp down on public debate and activism. The forum also will showcase the experiences of the courageous women and men on the front lines of this fight.

The initial plan is that the talk will not include any political topic, but if they do venture we all know the two will have something to chew on.
