The Holocaust. Rwanda. Cambodia. Darfur.
After each instance of genocide or mass atrocity, we hear our leaders say “Never Again,” yet we keep failing to fulfill this promise. Mass violence against innocent civilians, otherwise known as mass atrocities, is still devastating millions around the world today.
By listening and providing direct support to local leaders and civil society organizations on the front lines of violence prevention, we are preventing mass atrocities before they ever begin.
In particular, we know that hate speech can be a warning sign of impending identity-based violence. We facilitate trainings and community-based projects with activists to address Dangerous Speech around the world, including in the United States.
