Politics of Religion and the Myanmar Democracy Movement

by Guest Speaker David Moe

Tuesday, September 14, 2021, 6:30pm, O'Donnell Auditorium (Whitlock Building)

Join us for a fascinating lecture on the Myanmar military coup, which overturned the November 2020 election and detained Aung San Suu Kyi (national icon of democracy and Nobel Peace Prize Winner), and the rising democratic movement courageously being led by young people from different religious and ethnic backgrounds.
