Education is the greatest tool at our hands to fight and prevent genocide and mass atrocities. Education about genocide equips students with the ability to educate their peers and communities, learn from previous acts of genocide and mass atrocities, and strengthen the anti-genocide constituency. These teachings also promote the skills, knowledge, and awareness to prevent future conflict and current violence around the globe.
STAND supports students and young activists working to mandate genocide education across the United States.
