Libby Hoffman is president of Catalyst for Peace and a co-founder of the Fambul Tok program, which advances peace by mobilizing communities ravaged by war in the hard work of reconciliation. Fambul Tok ("family talk" in Krio) brings victims and perpetrators from Sierra Leone's civil war together in ceremonies of truth telling, apology, and forgiveness. Her work focuses on finding ways to help the world engage with the lessons of justice, forgiveness, and community restoration embodied by Fambul Tok.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
