KEYNOTE SPEAKER Wai Wai Nu, International Award-Winning Burmese Activist Wai Wai Nu is the director and founder of Women Peace Network. Nu was a political prisoner for seven years under the Burmese military government and emerged to serve as a national – and international – voice for Burma’s human rights and democracy movement. In 2012, after seven years as a political prisoner, she was released under a presidential amnesty. Nu was deeply moved by the escalated violence she encountered upon her release from prison. As a result, she formed the Women’s Peace Network, as a platform to build peace and mutual understanding between Myanmar’s different ethnicities and to empower and advocate for the rights of marginalized women in Arakan and Myanmar. Through the Women’s Peace Network she has been campaigning for women’s rights, an end to impunity. Nu has been working to reduce discrimination and hatred among Buddhist and Muslim communities and improve human rights situation of her people Rohingya. Nu has conducted women’s empowerment training, offered legal education seminars, and organized human rights and peacebuilding activities. In 2014, after completion of her law degree, she founded Justice for Women, which operates as a network of female lawyers providing legal consultation and education for the women of Burma. She also organized a campaign – “My Friend Campaign” – with youth from different communities to promote tolerance and to reduce discrimination among diverse groups. In 2016, Nu has founded a Yangon Youth Leadership Center where young people can learn and explore their ideas and promote leadership in social, political and peace-building. She was awarded N-Peace award (peace generation) and selected as a “100 Top Woman” by the BBC in 2014. She was awarded “Democracy Courage Tributes 2015” by World Movement for Democracy. She was also recognized as one of the 100 inspiring women by Salt Magazine and one of the 100 World Thinker 2015 by Foreign Policy Magazine respectively. She was listed as one of the Next Generation Leader in the world by Time Magazine in March 2017. Nu was recently awarded the 2017 Hillary Rodham Clinton Award for Advancing Women in Peace and Security by Georgetown University Institute of Women Peace and Security. 2018 CEW+Inspire Award Recipients   Achyuta Adhvaryu, Ph.D., Mphil, M.A., Assistant Professor of Business Economics, Ross School of Business; and Faculty Associate, Population Studies Center, Institute for Social Research Lightning talk title: “Unlocking Economic Opportunities for Women in India” Workshop title:  “You Can Shake the World”: My Ongoing Journey as a Development EconomistThursday, March 21, 2019, from 2:30-4:00pm followed by a networking reception.

It seems like every week we hear of someplace that just encountered workplace violence.  Unfortunately, some of us have experienced it ourselves.  When it happens, chaos, panic, and terror are realities.   It is a crisis in every definition.  Is anyone hurt?  Is anyone...dead?  Who did it?  Why?  The police, Sheriff, squads.  The media...and they want information...now!  Are you prepared?

Harry Truman first proposed national healthcare back in 1949 in his "Fair Deal" plan. After several failed attempts at healthcare reform, the 2010 Affordable Care Act expanded healthcare to many, but still has left millions without coverage as others struggle to afford higher premiums, copays, deductibles, and drug costs. Since 2003, representatives have tried to pass Medicare for All (HR 676), a single-payer healthcare system that would cover everyone. In a recent poll, 85% of Democrats, 52% of Republicans, and 70% of voters overall are in agreement with a single-payer universal healthcare system. Join us to hear from patients, healthcare providers and policy experts why we need Medicare for All and how we can persuade our electeds to sponsor and push for passage of HR 676. Light refreshments will be provided. Organizational sponsors: Physicians for a National Health Program Jane Addams Senior Caucus National Nurses United Illinois Progressive Network
