I hope you will join us this Sunday, April 3rd for the 3rd Annual Walk to End Genocide in Orange County. Sponsored by our friends at Jewish World Watch, the goal of the event is to highlight the ongoing genocides in Darfur, Sudan and Eastern Congo.
- The Darfur genocide is now in its 8th year, during which 400,000 innocent Darfuris have been systematically murdered.
- Among the most chilling world conflicts is the brutal war in Eastern Congo in which over 5.5 million civilians have been slaughtered in the past 14 years and millions more face brutal atrocities and displacement.
- We are facing a world in which there are over 19 conflicts now at high risk of genocide.
