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.

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.

2017 Brower Youth Awards Speech by Charlie Jiang talks about "doing good for the world," the world beyond his bubble, beyond his hometown, Chicago.
The conversation about the needs of women are met with snide and sometimes out rightly hostile remarks. Culture and religion have given women a construct of submission at all costs. Society has internalized a double standard that allows women to either bow down and accept the status quo, or be treated like outcasts and oddities for daring to stand up and make a statement. How do we push back at the walls society has put up to hold women back from being the best version of who and what they were meant to be? Many people argue that glass ceiling is a myth: a self-perpetuated, self-limiting, and self-sabotaging psychological construct that has been handed over to women of all tribes and ages for decades. In this talk, Audrey Joe-Ezigbo cremates that fallacious postulation. Audrey Joe-Ezeigbo has garnered a wealth of business development and management skills. Her areas of core competence lie in business strategy, management of finance and investments, corporate restructuring and resource optimization. She is co-founder and Executive Director of Falcon Corporation - a leading, privately-held, wholly-indigenous company and a member of the Falcon conglomerate. She sits on the board of several companies, and holds three MBAs and Executive Certifications, one of which certifications is from Harvard Business School.

Since its beginning 20 years ago, Amazon Watch has been deeply committed to defending indigenous peoples' rights and territories, for they are the best guardians of their rainforest homes. Considering that indigenous lands hold 80% of global biodiversity, it is no surprise that extractive industries want their resources. If left to them, the Amazon's Sacred Headwaters would become one big oil field, and the watersheds of the Brazilian Amazon would be destroyed by agribusiness and mega-dams. There is another way! Amazon Watch continues to stand with indigenous allies in defending their territories and sacred natural areas as industrial "No Go Zones." We are committed to supporting and amplifying Sarayaku's Kawsak Sacha, or Living Forests, proposal in defense of all life in the Amazon by keeping the oil in the ground. We want to expand this model throughout the Amazon, so that places like Yasuní National Park and the Xingu and Tapajós rivers will never again be considered for industrial development. We are also waging international market campaigns to expose and pressure governments and corporations that are causing harm. Our new Amazon Crude Campaign aims to reduce demand for rainforest-destroying oil. We recently began working with Brazilian allies to expose the financiers of environmental and indigenous rights law rollbacks. Learn more and join the movement at amazonwatch.org.

Will Keepin & Cynthia Brix - Transforming Patriarchy: From Gender Oppression to Beloved Community Watch their full talk here.
The Gender Equity and Reconciliation process (GRI) seeks to heal the profound wounds around gender, sexuality, and relational intimacy. It brings together people of all sexual orientations and genders to jointly confront gender disharmony to reach healing reconciliation. Will and Cynthia have developed the method over 24 years, introducing the practices in nine countries. Gender reconciliation's startling successes in South Africa have played a role in transforming that country's AIDS and HIV policies, and exciting new academic research on the program is underway at two South African universities.
This speech was given at the 2016 National Bioneers Conference.
