Dare to Demand Justice: Natalie Bridgeman Fields at TEDxCornellU

When governments and corporations abuse their power at the expense of vulnerable communities, what can these communities do to level the playing field and demand justice? Natalie Bridgeman Fields has spent the past 15 years as an international human rights and environmental attorney, where she has successfully supported communities to defend their rights. Natalie presents three insights used in her work as Executive Director of Accountability Counsel: people in power aren’t always the most informed, the rules of the game matter, and organizing can level the playing field. Natalie’s compelling story shares how these insights can and do change the world.
