End Genocide Action Summit: Creating a Generation without Genocide
Genocide Intervention Network and Save Darfur Coalition
Renaissance Hotel, 999 Ninth Street, NW – Washington, DC 20001
22-24 October 2011
For the past seven years people across the country – activists and artists, students and genocide survivors, faith leaders and policy experts – have been making things happen from their local communities to the halls of Congress and all the way to Sudan. We witnessed the power of activism when millions of people in the United States and around the world raised their voices together – in a historic mobilization – to demand an effective international response to the killings in Darfur.
Now, Genocide Intervention Network (along with their student-led division, STAND) and the Save Darfur Coalition have officially joined forces. In October, hundreds of activists and experts will convene in Washington, D.C. around a common theme and purpose: creating a generation without genocide.
The event will include plenary and panel sessions on a variety of topics including ongoing struggle for justice and peace in Sudan, recent crises in Libya and Syria, the Responsibility to Protect, and more. Skill-building training sessions, workshops and an optional lobby day will also be part of the event. ICRtoP Senior Outreach Officer Marion Arnaud will be featured as a panelist during the Summit.
