6:00 PM Talk: Human Rights in U.S. Foreign Policy and Diplomacy Over the last two decades of a 37-year career, Bennett Freeman has worked at the intersection of governments, international institutions, multinational corporations, responsible investors, and NGOs, to promote human rights and sustainable development around the world. An innovative leader in the fields of business and human rights, natural resource governance, and responsible investment, Freeman has helped develop multi-stakeholder initiatives and global standards that have strengthened corporate responsibility in industries ranging from extractives to information and communications technology.

Drawing on his experience as a former U.S. State Department human rights diplomat and, subsequently, as an international human rights advocate, Freeman will contend that renewing American leadership in the world means reasserting and adapting -- not redefining or abandoning -- our commitment to human rights.

Freeman earned an BA in History from the University of California at Berkeley in 1979 and a BA/MA in Modern History from the University of Oxford, where he studied as an English-speaking Union Churchill Scholar at Balliol College from 1978-1981.

7:00 PM Book Signing: Simon Tam Simon Tam, founder of Asian American dance rock band The Slants, will be presenting his new memoir, Slanted: How an Asian American Troublemaker Took on the Supreme Court. He'll be joined by Slants' guitarist, Joe x. Jiang, and will be performing some songs from the band's latest release. Gripping, funny, enlightening, and ultimately uplifting, Slanted proves that no obstacle is too difficult to conquer "as long as you have a little heart and a lot of rock n’ roll. It’s an irrepressible story that is fresh, alive, and defines what it means to be American.
