Dr Martin Luther King, Jr said that the moral arc of the universe bends towards justice. But how does it do that? Not on its own… In this powerful and inspiring talk, Laura O’Connell Rapira takes us from the past to the present to the future and makes the case that the future can be better than we think — but only if we’re willing to take action.
Laura O’Connell Rapira (Te Ātiawa, Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa, Ngāti Whakaue) is the Director of ActionStation, an independent, crowdfunded community campaigning organisation representing over 180,000 New Zealanders acting together to create what we cannot achieve on our own: a society, economy and democracy that serves everyday people and Papatūānuku (Earth Mother). She is also the Co-Founder of RockEnrol, a volunteer-powered organisation dedicated to activating the political power of young people. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
