USAID Administrator Samantha Power

On Tuesday, June 7, at 9 a.m. ET, in partnership with Freedom House, USAID Administrator Samantha Power will deliver a foreign policy address. She will discuss how, despite years of democratic decline and the rise of authoritarianism across the world, the current moment presents a pivotal opportunity to reverse these trends and create a more democratic, peaceful, and prosperous future. 

With autocracies currently on their back heel, now is the time for the world’s free nations, multilateral institutions, private sector partners, and civil societies to demonstrate that democracies can deliver in a way that autocracies never will, and meet the challenges we face from food insecurity to COVID-19 to climate change. 

Administrator Power will be speaking from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., and the address will be livestreamed for the public. 

Register here to attend virtually.

Potential, new, and current USAID partners are invited to tune in to watch the Administrator's speech on this important moment in history for the world to unite behind democracy. Visit USAID's website for more information.
