An Upstander and Now a Wayfinder: Martha Minow on Law and Forgiveness, at TEDwomen

April 3, 2020

Former Dean of Harvard Law School Martha Minow addresses forgiving debts, putting aside political animosity, and releasing inmates at TEDwomen. 

During a speech at TEDWomen, Martha Minow advises that debt and incarceration are a detriment to public health, and it is imperative to forgive during the global pandemic. "Letting go of justified grievances is actually a resource for a more inclusive form of justice, one that looks to the future, not just the past and to the larger patterns that implicare more than the immediate wrongdoer in human problems," says Minow.
