From June 18-21, 2016, activists and peacemakers from 22 countries gathered for The Carter Center’s Annual Human Rights Defenders Forum, “A Time for Peace: Rejecting Violence to Secure Human Rights.” Forum participants joined former U.S. President Jimmy Carter in calling for all nations to recommit to the realization of universal human rights, the advancement of women’s leadership, and the rejection of violent approaches to countering extremists, which have resulted in an unending cycle of violence.

"When our mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters are considered both different and inferior in the eyes of the God we worship, this belief tends to permeate society and everyone suffers"
