More than 60 activists, scholars, and community leaders will come together to discuss ways to end violence in all its forms during the Carter Center’s annual Human Rights Defenders Forum, “A Time for Peace: Rejecting Violence to Secure Human Rights.”

Among the themes of this year’s forum are the economics of peace, unlearning violence, and nonviolent approaches to security and law enforcement.

While this event is not open to the public, portions of the forum will be webcast live (free) on cartercenter.org beginning Monday, June 20 at 1:30 p.m.
