In 2011, two great organizations merged to become United to End Genocide—for so many important reasons.
First and foremost, it was time to show the world a unified front in the anti-genocide movement. As distinct entities, the Save Darfur Coalition and Genocide Intervention Network mobilized individuals, local groups and institutions of all kinds. Separately, they played major roles in creating a powerful movement and unprecedented global demand to stop the ongoing genocide in Darfur.
But it became clear to both organizations that we could do more together. We know it will take cohesive action to sound the alarm and shine a spotlight on those who cause or enable genocide or mass atrocities. And it’s certain we’ll need a large and unified group of activists to influence elected leaders and others with the power to protect all who face the threat of genocide or mass atrocity.
In this report you will read about and hear from some of the incredible individuals who are vital to our growing movement. As lifelong activists with a passion for human rights, we are privileged to work alongside them and all of you to ensure that United to End Genocide extends the legacy of action we inherited. Together, we’ll lead the movement until genocide is eliminated once and for all.
