Building a Movement to End Genocide
We believe the only way to prevent mass atrocities and to end genocide once and for all, is to build a large and powerful activist movement that will sound the alarm, shine a spotlight on those who cause or enable genocide or mass atrocities, and demand action by our elected leaders and anyone who has the power to protect those who face the threat of genocide or mass atrocity, anywhere in the world.
One of the key roles we play is the connector – we bring together our End Genocide leaders, faith leaders at the community level, leaders from our survivors network and students – to ensure the movement whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
The End Genocide Network is our program to connect and support hundreds of community leaders across the United States by providing tools, training and action opportunities to help them become effective anti-genocide organizers and activists in their communities.
Many committed activists came to this movement because of the atrocities in Darfur, and more than 150 community leaders who worked closely with our legacy organizations, either as Darfur Leaders or Carl Wilkens Fellows – are now united as our End Genocide leaders, ready and able to mobilize hundreds of supporters within their communities to take action. We continue to provide the depth of information, ongoing leadership and engagement opportunities they need to fuel their activism.
We are also reaching out and identifying new leaders in communities across the nation. For all of our activists and leaders, United to End Genocide provides an online forum and in-person opportunities to share stories and experiences, strategize, build capacity and create effective advocacy. We provide encouragement and tools to help leaders plan events, build support in their communities, write persuasive opinion pieces, and lobby elected officials.
Uniting in Faith and Commitment to Human Rights
We work with more than 150 faith, human rights and community-based social justice partner organizations throughout the United States and globally. Faith communities and their leaders have always played a pivotal role in raising alarm and spurring action to address the Darfur genocide.
We share our campaigns and work with faith leaders to reach the millions of Americans in synagogues, churches and mosques, helping these congregations of conscience stand up against the threat of genocide and mass atrocities, anywhere in the world.
