When the word “genocide” is uttered, most people, including myself, automatically think of brutal crimes from years past that we only read about in history books. Shockingly, this act continues to take place even today in various locations around the globe, such as Darfur, Sudan.
Do you find this devastating? Would you like to get more information and help put a stop to this destruction? In an effort to raise awareness about the Darfur Genocide, USU Productions is hosting Camp Darfur, a traveling display of tents representing six different genocides, on campus Monday, March 5. The event starts at 10 a.m. and lasts until 4 p.m. Survivors and relatives of survivors of past genocides will speak between noon and 1 p.m. Come by the Memorial Court, south of the Kennel Bookstore, and check it out. Make sure to stop by the Richter Center Ambassadors’ Advocacy table and learn what you can do to help stop this destruction.
This is your chance to make an impact!
