In this presentation, Vic Schachter, the president of The Foundation for Sustainable Rule of Law Initiatives (FSRI), will discuss his journey from Silicon Valley litigator to founder of an NGO created to promote the establishment of dispute resolution centers around the globe in countries with heavily backlogged courts cases, and thereby provide access by underserved populations to fair, timely and peaceful resolution of their claims and preservation of their human rights. He will share some of his experiences across the globe, spanning from Asia,the Balkans, and South America to Africa.

Please join us for a buffet lunch at 12:30pm. If you're a student, or a first-timer to an HCSV event, lunch is on us. Otherwise, please help by chipping in $10 (or whatever you can afford).

Head south (away from the Bay) on Rengstorff Ave. (in Mountain View) from 101 or Central Expressway until you cross the train tracks. Then turn left at the intersection (with a traffic light) that says "Stanford Ave.-->" and
"<--Community Center". That puts you into the Community Center's parking lot. In the parking lot, veer to the right, and then turn left, and park alongside the right-hand side of the Community Center. Enter where you see the Humanist Community sign.
