April is Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month and we are taking the message of “Never Again” to the streets with the DC Walk to End Genocide.
United to End Genocide is pleased to join with the Darfur Interfaith Network, in partnership with Jewish World Watch, for the DC Walk to End Genocide.
This event is designed to educate fellow citizens, urge others to take action to end genocide and mass atrocities, and raise funds to improve the lives of those affected by genocide.
On Sunday, April 26 at 1:30pm the two mile, family-friendly walk will begin behind the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum (100 Raoul Wallenberg Place Southwest, Washington, DC 20024) and goes to the Martin Luther King Memorial, the Reflecting Pool, the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial, and then returns to the starting point.
The event will feature guest speakers, activities for children, and educational information booths.
To get involved, register to walk with United to End Genocide’s team or start your own, volunteer, or become a sponsor. For those who would like to participate, but are outside of the D.C.-area, you can register to be a virtual walker, or see if there will be a walk near you.
