Join us on the Frontlines of Freedom, a new series of broadcasts where RDI examines the rise of autocracy around the world and the root causes of conflicts. Here, we engage in critical discussions with experts, policymakers, and those directly impacted by global turmoil.
Frontlines of Freedom is hosted by Evan Mawarire, a Zimbabwean democracy activist and former political prisoner. In 2016 Mawarire founded the #ThisFlag Citizen Movement in Zimbabwe to confront corruption, injustice, and poverty. He was named one of the 100 top global thinkers of 2016 by Foreign Policy magazine.
Evan Mawarire brought down a dictator in Zimbabwe. He went to jail. Twice. Tortured. Exiled. He knows when democracy is in danger, and he’s dialing 911. On December 27, he takes you to the Frontlines of Freedom. Tune in.
