Stop Genocide Now
Stop Genocide Now is a grassroots community dedicated to working to protect populations in grave danger of violence, death and displacement resulting from genocide. Through active education, advocacy and policy change SGN resolves to change the way the world responds to genocide. SGN is currently focused on creating awareness and action to stop the genocide in Darfur and deal appropriately with its aftermath. All of our projects focus on and utilize the strength and power in grassroots connectivity.
Active Education: To educate the public about genocide through innovative, interactive events and media designed to bring them closer to crimes being committed as well as help them realize their own power to stop those crimes.
Advocacy: To support and guide citizens toward small, practical action that results in large, seemingly impracticable change.
Policy Change: Through the activities above we intend to create the public pressure necessary to generate the policy change (locally, nationally and internationally) that will lead to the protection of civilians in danger and the promotion of peace.
