Learn how to do effective activism on Duke's campus

 
 
LOCATION: FHI Garage, Smith Warehouse, Bay 4
Alan McBride is Centre Co-ordinator at the WAVE Trauma Centre in Belfast, (a cross community victims/survivors organization). In addition to this, he also sits on the Board of Healing Through Remembering and is chair of the HTR initiative on developing a Living Memorial Museum to the ‘Troubles’. He has served as a Commissioner with the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission since September 2011 and has a special interest on issues relating with transitional justice. Alan has become an advocate for peace since losing his wife and father-in-law in a bomb that occurred in Belfast during the early nineties. McBride will discuss his own journey through the ‘Troubles’, the optimism that followed the signing of the Good Friday accords, and the proposed Bill of Rights.  In this process, dealing with the past and building a shared future have been central parts of his work.
Cosponsored by the DHRC@FHI, DukeEngage and the BorderWork(s) Humanities Lab.

There will also be a lunch with McBride before this talk.
Time: 12:00-1:30 P.M.
