Genocide Awareness and Prevention

     As you sit here reading this article I am sad to inform you that you are currently a witness, whether you realize or not, to the first genocide of the 21st century—that which is occurring in Darfur, Sudan. Since 2003, the genocide in Darfur has claimed over 400,000 lives and displaced more than 2.5 million people. What originally began as an insurrection against the Khartoum government (the current government in Sudan) — as a response to years of neglect, poverty, and civil war — has formed into a full blown genocide carried out by Darfur’s own government. What is sad about the situation in Darfur has been the world’s reaction, or lack of reaction, to finding ways to encourage the international community to put Darfur first on its political agenda. However, amidst all this despair are the stories of students and individuals who have decided to devote some of their time to learning more about the genocide and finding ways to get involved in stopping it.
