Here is our first N-Map Voices post. The following video is a clip from an interview of Felix Morka, Executive Director of the Social and Economic Rights Action Center (SERAC) in Lagos, Nigeria. Felix is a great human rights innovator, and a great mentor of mine. His organization just won a MacArthur award for Creative and Effective Institutions.
I find this statement captivating – a powerful articulation of why human rights are important, and the importance of humans in the work of expanding freedom and opportunity (ironically, something that is forgotten all too often).
