You Can Make a Difference!

Faces of Genocide

"Whosoever saves a single life, saves the world entire." - Mishnah, Sanhedrin 4:5

 

After the Holocaust, the words Never Again sounded loudly as leaders pledged never again to remain silent in the face of mass extermination. But Never Again became Over and Over Again. The Holocaust was followed by genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Guatemala, East Timor, Darfur, and in many other places. Never Again must mean Never.

How can you make a difference? Here are eight simple ways you can help to create a world without genocide:

1. Be Present:

Stay informed and share information with others about ongoing genocides.

2. Volunteer:

Volunteer with an anti-genocide or humanitarian organization aligned with your personal convictions.

3. Be an Advocate:

Sign a petition, write a letter, or make a phone call! Your elected officials need to know that you care. Find your representatives.

4. Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is:

Look for "fair trade" and "conflict free" products.

5. Put Your Hands to Work:

Like to knit or crochet? You can make reusable cotton bandages for humanitarian organizations like International Aid.

6. Tell the Story:

Organizing an educational program in your community is a great way to raise awareness!

7. Organize or Participate:

Organize or participate in a medical, clothing, or food drive.

8. Find a Partner:

Many organizations provide free, easy-to-use toolkits. A great example is United to End Genocide, where you can learn more about easy ways to get involved.
