The Faces of Genocide | Global Citizenship Conference

Given the increased volatility in our world, and the apparent lack of deep awareness of how violence can eradicate whole groups of people, we will spend a day with students, colleagues and community members focused on learning about genocide, its legacies, and what is meant by “social justice” and “equity.”
