Ask a Human Rights Legend

If a Nobel Peace Prize winner and human rights icon wanted to talk to you and answer your questions, what would you ask?

Burmese freedom fighter and human rights defender Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is coming to the U.S. for the first time in over 20 years, after spending years in detention and house arrest. Hope for the future is what kept her going -- that's why she wants to engage with you, the next generation of human rights activists, about her story and the future of human rights.

She'll be answering these questions and more at Amnesty's Rights Generation event -- an interactive Town Hall-style event moderated by MSNBC's Alex Wagner happening September 20th in Washington, DC. Ask your question now!

What is your advice to a young person who wants to make a difference in this world for human rights?

What is the biggest challenge you've ever faced?

You are my hero! Who are some of your personal heroes?

What are the most pressing human rights concerns of the future, and what can we do about them now?

During the most difficult times of your life, where did you find inspiration to keep fighting for justice?

Please be brief. Questions limited to 200 characters.
