Update from OC for Darfur

Hi everyone,

A lot of has happened in the last couple of weeks.  Here is a quickie update.

“In Darfur” play
–  We are currently in weekly rehearsals and hope to be ready for performances starting March 2009.
–  Right now we desperately need a Stage Manager.  Prior stage management experience or technical theatre knowledge is a plus, but is not required.  If you’re good at organizing people and tasks, love theatre, and want to help Darfur while working on a great project with an amazing group of people, please contact me.

Barbara selected as a 2009 Carl Wilkens Fellow
That’s right.  A couple of us applied for GI-Net’s Wilkens fellowship last fall… and Barbara got selected!  The fellowship is a training program for “emerging leaders to build lasting networks of citizens who believe that protecting men, women and children from genocide is everyone’s responsibility”.

I hope you will join me in congratulating her.  Btw, she’s leaving for Washington this weekend for the first workshop.
