STAND will be hosting its 2008 National Student Conference November 7-9 in Washington, DC! Join student activists from across the country as we come together to learn from policy experts and each other about how to be more effective advocates to end the ongoing atrocities in Sudan and ensure that we "STAND Out Loud" against genocide in our world.
Whether you’re a newcomer just getting interested in the issue or a seasoned Darfur activist, this conference will have something new for everyone. You’ll get to take part in activist workshops, hear panelists discuss the most recent news from the ground, learn about other conflicts like Burma and Congo, and take away specific tools and skills to help you and your chapter to become more effective advocates for our cause.
STAND is holding this year’s conference in conjunction with Save Darfur Coalition’s adult activist conference and a Tents of Hope weekend of activism on the National Mall. Don’t pass up this incredible opportunity for the anti-genocide movement to come together as we explore new ways to support each other’s efforts. Our conference, in Washington, DC, right after a historic election, will make a strong statement to the newly elected President and Congress.
