Firm Event | June.18.2018 | 12:00pm - 1:30pm (Pacific Standard Time)

Orrick San Francisco

In honor of World Refugee Week’s 20th Anniversary, Orrick is pleased to host a conversation with Dr. Samantha Nutt, award-winning humanitarian, bestselling author and founder of War Child USA and War Child Canada. With a career spanning more than two decades on the front lines of the world’s most violent flashpoints, Dr. Nutt will talk about the global impact of war — what fuels and sustains it, and how Americans can make a tangible difference in the lives of women and children caught in the crossfire. 

Dr. Nutt is a respected authority on the civilian impact of war, international aid and foreign policy. Her TED Talk on the deadly impact of small arms garnered over a million views in just six months on TED.com and was aired on PBS. She is a regular contributor to NowThis News and her critically-acclaimed debut book, Damned Nations: Greed, Guns, Armies and Aid, was a #1 national bestseller.  In 2011, Dr. Nutt was appointed to the Order of Canada, Canada’s highest civilian honour, for her contributions to improving the plight of young people in the world’s worst conflict zones.
