About Us

Over the next two years, three high-profile media products will tell the story of the United Nations’ Sergio Vieira de Mello and introduce audiences to the kind of conviction and insight that inspires movements. In the months ahead we’ll be using the momentum generated by these products – a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Samantha Power, a compelling feature length documentary, and a major motion picture – to embark on a new campaign designed to educate Americans on Sergio’s life and lessons… and to use his story to ignite a dynamic constituency that demands a smarter foreign policy for the United States.

At, Power will join an eclectic group of scholars, activists, humanitarians and citizens from around the world to reflect on Sergio’s life and legacy, provoke debate, and discuss how this movement can have the greatest impact possible.
