Humanitarian Disarmament Forum

03 November 2021 | Online

The Campaign to Stop Killer Robots and Soka Gakkai International are excited to open registration for  Part 3 of the Humanitarian Disarmament Forum on Racism and Intersectionality, which will take place online on 3 November, 2021 from 14:00-18:00 CET (check your local time here). 

The Humanitarian Disarmament Forum (HDF) 2020-2021 has focused on diversity—particularly race—and  how to be more intersectional in working to advance humanitarian disarmament. Racism is not limited to overt acts of hatred or violence, it is systemic and often nuanced. The topic of the HDF 2020-2021 was chosen in recognition that civil society and our community are not immune to these structures of power and oppression, and that we need to do more to confront this reality.
