March 22, 2021 - Human Rights Activist and Recipient of the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize Nadia Murad will serve as the keynote speaker in a virtual presentation hosted by the University of Houston Office of the Provost. The University of Houston Law Center and the UH Graduate College of Social Work are serving as co-presenters for the event at 5 p.m. on April 8.

Murad is a leading voice for survivors of genocide and sexual violence. As a co-recipient of the Nobel, Nadia and Denis Mukwege were honored for “their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict.”

Her New York Times best-selling memoir, "The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State," is a harrowing account of the genocide of her people, the Yazidi, and her kidnapping and imprisonment by the Islamic State.
