Civil Rights, Immigration, & Human Dignity
At The Sanders Institute Gathering, Dr. Jim Zogby moderated a panel on civil rights, immigration, and human dignity with Dr. Radhika Balakrishnan, Representative Tulsi Gabbard, Susan Sarandon, and Ben Jealous. The panelists talked about how climate change and economic injustice are creating conflicts across the world and contributing to mass migration. And they talked about the history of the United States and how genocide against indigenous peoples, indentured servitude, slavery, and disenfranchisement defined the United States’ beginning and still shapes our social and our political realities. Civil rights, immigration, climate change, and the economy – all are connected and tied directly to the issues of justice and human rights.
