11-FightersWhere would we be without our fighters? This session pays tribute to the brave activists who are in the trenches working toward the things that matter. Making their impact through law, journalism and education, these speakers bring a fearsome and tireless dedication to the cause of human dignity.

The speakers who’ll appear in this session:

Kimberley Motley is the only foreign litigator in Afghanistan, defending non-Afghans stuck in prisons there and taking on cases of women and children victims of human rights violantions.

Omoyele Sowore founded Sahara Reporters, an online news platform known for its unflinching reporting in Nigeria. Frustrated by the tendency of mainstream media to fold to pressure, Sowore sees huge potential in web journalism.

TED Fellow and epidemiologist Chikwe Ihekweazu will speak on the ebola epidemic.

Fred Swaniker, a TED Fellow from Ghana, founded the African Leadership Academy to support a new generation of leaders on the continent.
