  3. Andre Banks
    Directory of Strategy
    Purpose

    Andre has spent the last 10 years building social movements that have shaped politics in the U.S. and abroad. Most recently, he worked as the Deputy Director of ColorOf- Change.org using online organiz- ing to build a multi-racial move- ment in the U.S. around issues of racial justice. Andre managed the 700,000-member organization and led political and issue campaigns through the 2008 primaries and general election.

    Andre got his start building a national network of student organizers concerned with economic justice at the AFL-CIO. An expanded focus on connecting national movements to global issues led him to Africa Action where he built a national constituency pushing for action on AIDS in the U.S. and in Africa. He moved on to build the media and public affairs department at the Applied Research Center, placing stories on hot button issues of racial equality in outlets as varied as the Chicago Sun-Times, San Francisco Chronicle, LA Weekly, National Pub- lic Radio and Agence-France Press. While there, he also led the strategy and managed the development of the online newsmagazine Colorlines.com, serving as its founding editor.

    Andre has also led hundreds of trainings and workshops on cam- paign strategy, media outreach and the use of technology to (smartly) build social movements. An Ohio native turned Brooklynite, Andre spends a lot of time riding the A train with 1,000,000 of his neighbors every morning. He also has the second-best singing voice at Purpose, after Emmy Suzuki Harris.

  4. Joseph Amon is the director of the Health and Human Rights division at Human Rights Watch. He joined the organization in 2005 as head of its HIV/AIDS program, having previously worked for more than 15 years conducting research, designing programs,
    and evaluating interventions related to HIV, malaria, hepatitis, and Guinea Worm disease for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and for projects funded by the US Agency for International Development.

    He has also served at the Carter Center and Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. Since coming to Human Rights Watch, Amon has worked on a wide range of issues related to health and human rights, including: access to medicines (antiretroviral, drug dependency, and pain relief treatment), HIV testing, and the rights of prisoners and migrants to access health care. He has also worked on unproven AIDS ‘cures,’ and human rights abuses associated with infectious disease outbreaks and multi- drug resistant tuberculosis. Amon is the author or coauthor of a number of book chapters, reports, and more than two dozen articles in medical and public health journals.

    He is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of the International AIDS Society, the UNAIDS reference group on HIV and Human Rights, and the Stop TB Programme’s Task Force on TB and Human Rights. In addition, he is an associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University and a lecturer in public and international affairs at Princeton University. Amon has a master’s degree in tropical medicine and a PhD in epidemiology.
