Whats up UNCC Stand and Friends, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know about some cool events happening soon : )
STAND NATIONAL CONFERENCE:
“We invite you to this year’s national conference for anti-genocide activists in Washington, DC. Especially given events surrounding Sudan and pending genocide prevention legislation this spring, this event will be an opportunity for the strongest minds on anti-genocide activism to meet, learn, and re-energize. Save the date!
-WHO: 1,000 activists committed to the mission of a permanent anti-genocide constituency
-WHAT: The first national conference for anti-genocide activists brought to you by the newly merged Genocide Intervention Network and Save Darfur Coalition
-WHEN: Saturday, April 16th through Monday, April 18th (optional lobby day on April 18th)
-WHERE: Renaissance Hotel in downtown DC*
-WHY: Because Never Again is still not a reality
I am looking into a grant to pay for this so PLEASE let me know ASAP if you are interested !!!
