5th Annual National Symposium on Women & Genocide
in the 21st Century: The Case of Darfur
Building Strategies for Sustainable Change in Sudan
October 21st–22nd, 2016
For the past seven years, Darfur Women Action Group (DWAG) has been working with its allies to bring awareness to the magnitude of the genocide in Darfur and particularly its impact on women. DWAG educates the public about these issues, empowering survivors and enable them to bring their voices to regional and international forums.
From Friday, October 21st to Saturday, October 22nd, we, along with hundreds of anti-genocide activists, women’s rights advocates, survivors, experts, artists, celebrities and concerned leaders will come together to address genocide, it’s impact on women, and build strategies for sustainable change in Darfur.
Activists, students, and, distinguished keynote speakers, survivors testimonies and experts on genocide and women’s issues from around the world.
By addressing genocide and its impact on women, we will define challenges and develop strategies for ending violence against women and the use of rape as a weapon of war. Our goal is to empower activists and affected communities, set strategies for meaningful inclusion and justice for victims, and influence effective policy reforms that will bring a sustainable end to genocide in the 21st century.
