Nova Southeastern University Welcomes Social Justice Activist Kerry Kennedy

Nova Southeastern University’s Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences will host an evening with Kerry Kennedy, Thursday, April 17, from 7:00–8:30 p.m. The event location has been changed to the Knight Auditorium of the Carl DeSantis Building located on NSU’s main campus (3301 College Avenue in Davie).

Kennedy, a leading advocate for human rights around the world and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, will lecture on “Speak Truth to Power,” as part of the college’s Distinguished Speakers Series.

In a time of growing attention to human rights issues, Kerry Kennedy has been an international protector of those in need of justice. She has led dozens of human rights delegations to countries around the world since she began investigating U.S. immigration abuses against refugees from El Salvador in 1981. Among her many accomplishments since then, she has published Speak Truth to Power: Human Rights Defenders Who Are Changing Our World, which features interviews with famous human rights activists. Kennedy has also served as executive director, and is now on the board of directors, of the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial, a non-profit organization that addresses social justice problems.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Tickets are available to the public beginning Monday, April 14, by contacting (954) 262-8236. There will be guaranteed seating held for ticket holders until 6:30 p.m. If spacing permits, walk-ins will be welcome to attend the event after 6:45 p.m.
