Last week, we asked you to pledge to join the movement to prevent genocide, and to ask your friends and family to do the same.
You responded with a roar: more than 50,000 people – including Holocaust survivor and Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel and actress Paris Hilton – added their voice to the growing movement to prevent genocide. More than 100 events took place at high schools and colleges nationwide as part of the National Canvass to Prevent Genocide. (Check out this awesome video by University of New Hampshire STAND!)
Tonight, we have the opportunity to hear from Susan Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, in a live webcast hosted by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Ambassador Rice will discuss her experiences working on issues of genocide and mass atrocities and highlight what can be done to prevent such crimes in the future.

Then tune in at 7 PM EST tonight – THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10 – to the live webcast hosted by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum at: http://www.ushmm.org/webcasts/rice
