Bridging the gap between rights and justice | Joanna Sidhu | TEDxCoventGardenWomen
Static Preview

Do we really have legal rights? After a confrontation from a young refugee in The Jungle in Calais, Joanna Sidhu sheds light on how the law can actually restrict access to justice and how the power of coming together can be a force for good. Joanna is Head of UK at CrowdJustice, the only platform for raising funds and awareness around legal cases with a mission to make the law accessible to all. Before joining CrowdJustice, Joanna was an experienced litigator at City law firm, Ashurst, where she worked on international and High Court litigation in London and Hong Kong. In 2016, Joanna worked on a strategic pro bono project with unaccompanied refugee children in the Jungle, Calais. Having seen first hand the scale of this crisis Joanna was inspired to make the move from City law to startup life. Joanna has a strong focus on using technology to increase access to both the courts and engagement with the law itself. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Bill Moyers on the McCutcheon Decision
Static Preview

After Bill's interview with Saru Jayaraman on food workers fight for a living wage, he spoke about the two events this week -- one in Albany, NY and the other in Washington, DC -- that have made the fight to save democracy from big money, already an uphill battle, even harder.

In Albany, Governor Cuomo and legislators killed a commission investigating political corruption, failed to pass campaign finance reform and gave tax breaks to the rich in their annual budget. In Washington, the Supreme Court struck down overall contribution limits on how much individual donors can give to candidates, parties and PACs.

In this clip, Bill offers his reactions to this week's events: "The prevailing myth in America has been that the rich have a right to buy more homes, more cars, more gizmos, vacations and leisure. But they don't have the right to buy more democracy. The Supreme Court has just laid that myth to rest, and the new gilded age roars in triumph."
