Preventing Mass Atrocities through Non-Traditional Partnerships

1/13/20 - As an attorney, activist, and passionate advocate for social justice, Shannon Sedgwick Davis has guided Bridgeway Foundation in pioneering solutions to seemingly intractable issues around the world. She and her team have been credited for their pivotal role in mobilizing awareness, civilian protection, and recovery efforts against the Lord’s Resistance Army and its leader, Joseph Kony. Through efforts with local governments and their armies they achieved a 90% reduction in violence in the country of Uganda.

For over 20 years, Shannon and the Bridgeway Foundation have endeavored to be a vital partner to some of the world’s leading development, human rights, and conflict resolution organizations. Their vision: a world free of genocide and mass atrocities.

Shannon bravely fights for human rights and is a catalyst for peace around the world. Kellogg was pleased to welcome her to speak at the Brave Leader series, made possible by the generosity of Donna and Lloyd Morgan, BBA '62 & KSM ’63.
