In August 2017, Namati founder and CEO, Vivek Maru, spoke about the need for and promise of legal empowerment on the TEDGlobal stage in Arusha. We are pleased to share the video of Vivek’s TED talk, which is posted on TED.com.
Vivek made a powerful case for legal empowerment, stating, “If we’re going to make justice a reality for everyone, we need to turn law from an abstraction or a threat into something that every single person can understand, use, and shape.”
This is the essence of the legal empowerment movement, and we encourage you to share this message and the link to the video widely, on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and via email. TED videos are extremely popular; having one on legal empowerment presents our community with an opportunity to bring this important conversation to the general public. If we are to make access to justice for all a reality, we need people to speak up and demand it.
