A Conversation with Former Vice President of the Philippines Leni Robredo: Confronting Disinformation in the Digital Age

Saturday, December 10 | 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET | ASEAN Auditorium, Cabot Center

Join the Tufts Philippine Student Union, the Hitachi Center at The Fletcher School and Tisch College for a lecture and conversation with former Vice President of the Philippines, Leni Robredo. Robredo served as the 14th vice president of the Republic of the Philippines from 2016-2022. During her tenure, she spearheaded multiple initiatives including COVID-19 relief and her flagship anti-poverty program, Angat Buhay (Uplifting Lives). The de facto leader of the opposition and a staunch critic of the former administration’s policies, Robredo continues to frequently be the target of disinformation. After leaving office, she established an NGO called Angat Buhay, taking the name and template of the anti-poverty program that she established during her vice presidency. She currently serves as one of the five Hauser leaders at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Center of Public Leadership.

This event is currently limited to the Tufts community. It is closed to the press.
