As a part of the Storytelling for Social Change Series, join the Human Rights Institute in welcoming Andrew Leon Hanna for a special conversation on his latest book, 25 Million Sparks: The Untold Story of Refugee Entrepreneurs (Cambridge University Press). Called “a powerful story of hope” by Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee and a chance to “discover humanity at its best” by PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff, his book tells the story of three Syrian women entrepreneurs in the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan, and of the broader global refugee entrepreneurship phenomenon they represent. Join the HRI Tuesday, September 26th from 4-5 P.M. in McDonough Faculty Lounge 5th Floor.
