DARFUR: 20 YEARS OF ATROCITIES
Please join us for a panel discussion on the ongoing crisis in Darfur and its links to the current situation in Sudan. It has been 20 years since mass atrocities began in Darfur, Sudan. In 2004, the US government determined that genocide was occurring. To this day, survivors continue to be attacked and violently displaced without access to security, justice and basic necessities. Congress has consistently shown bipartisan support for ending violence against civilians in Darfur, addressing the root causes of instability, and pushing for justice and accountability. The panel discussion, taking place during Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month, and under the unfolding conflict between SAF and RSF, will reflect on lessons learned over the past two decades, provide analysis of the current situation, and examine what is needed to bring about genuine freedom, peace and justice in Darfur and all of Sudan.
Date: Thursday, April 20th
Time: 2:00 - 3:30 pm ET
