Cohen Center Presentation –
Sudan: Genocide in Darfur
Darfur is now probably the world's worst humanitarian crisis. This presentation highlights the current situation in Darfur, the background history, and the geographic and politically-sponsored catalysts that have led to genocide.
Sudanese government actions against Darfur currently include: Inflaming ethnic conflict; impeding international humanitarian access, resulting in deadly conditions of life for displaced civilians; bombing civilian targets with aircraft; and murdering and raping civilians.
This presentation will be a call for "disruptive empathy." Ideas for individual and group action will be presented in this call to help those suffering the effects of genocide.
A good starting point for background on Darfur is Darfur Briefing (in PDF format).
