Maria Ressa’s How to Stand Up to a Dictator Presented By UCSB Arts & Lectures
May 18 @ 7:30 pm$10 – $35
Celebrated around the world for her commitment to free expression, human dignity and democratic government, journalist Maria Ressa has spent decades speaking truth to power and challenging corruption. The recipient of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, Ressa has had multiple arrest warrants filed against her for her reporting on the authoritarian administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Her new book How to Stand Up to a Dictator tells the story of how democracy dies by a thousand cuts and how social media is killing our freedoms.
Maria Ressa’s How to Stand Up to a Dictator, originally scheduled for January 19, has been rescheduled for May 18. The time and venue (7:30 PM at Campbell Hall) remain the same. Patrons with tickets for January 19 will receive replacement tickets in the coming weeks. If you purchased tickets as a gift, please alert the recipient.
