Genocide Awareness Month
April 1, 2022 @ 12:00 am - April 30, 2022 @ 11:30 pm
Event Description: Several programs will be offered throughout the month of April from the Holocaust Center and our partners from LIGHT and Together We Remember. Many of these programs will encourage student leadership and participation and connect to the topics of resistance and resilience.
The Enough Project gives the following description of Genocide Awareness Month:
April is designated as Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month each year, as it marks important anniversaries for multiple acts of genocide in the 20th century. Throughout the month, individuals and organizations join together to commemorate and honor victims and survivors, educate the public about past and contemporary genocides, and advocate for prevention against future mass atrocities. Together, we seek to empower and amplify voices from across the world that have in one way or another been affected by past genocides or have taken up the challenge to combat mass atrocities in the future.
