Save Darfur Coalition and the Genocide Intervention Network are now United to End Genocide, the largest activist organization in America dedicated to preventing and ending genocide and mass atrocities worldwide. Both organizations led the historic movement to demand an end to genocide in Darfur. For the first time, elected leaders took action to stop genocide — because millions of people took a stand and spoke out in one voice to say, “You must!”
The November 1, 2010 merger created the largest anti-genocide organization that combined, boasts a membership base of over 800,000 committed activists globally, an unparalleled nationwide student movement, and a network of institutional investors with over $700 billion in assets under management.
The merged organization will harness the power of its constituencies to influence actors – primarily the American government, multi-national institutions and corporations – to use their diplomatic and financial leverage to help prevent and stop large-scale atrocities.
“Joining together the Save Darfur Coalition and Genocide Intervention Network creates one organization that is stronger than the sum of its parts and better positioned to make genocide prevention a priority for the U.S. government and international community. This union combines an impressive network of supporters, activists, and partners that we feel confident will multiply the impact of our work.”
—Dr. Antonios Kireopoulos, Chair of Save Darfur Coalition and of the merged Board of Directors
Established in 2005, the Genocide Intervention Network began mobilizing the first permanent anti-genocide constituency committed to stopping the worst atrocities around the world. It included a worldwide coalition of investors, a national fellowship of local leaders across the United States and over 1,000 student chapters at colleges and high schools.
