Moderator: Brandon Garrett, Duke Law’s Center for Science and Justice

During the fall semester, the Duke Sanford School of Public Policy is pleased to present a signature virtual (online) speaker series to explore important policy conversations to move forward democracy, justice, equity, community, strategy and human rights. The series is produced and presented honor of our school’s founder Terry Sanford.   

“I’ve said to students, if you get into politics, you ought to get in with the frame of mind that winning is not everything. And if standing for something defeats you, so be it. Stand for something.”  - Duke Sanford School founder Terry Sanford 

Each talk in the “Stand for” series is created for a broad audience of Duke students, faculty, community members, alumni; also media, policymakers, prospective students and all interested in these topics from a policy lens.  You are welcome to join us!
