Camp Darfur in Portland, OR

Reading Time: 1 minute

Gali Slayen from the STAND chapter from Lincoln High School, Portland OR writes to us:

Camp Darfur was an incredible experience to bring to my high school. It gave over a thousand students the opportunity to learn about past genocides and the current genocide taking place in Darfur. The students were really affected by the tents and found it to be a really meaningful learning experience. It opened eyes to the atrocities taking place in Sudan. The other Dream for Darfur events were also very meaningful. Seeing “Darfur Now”, listening to a refugee speak, and attending a candle light vigil to remember all that have passed have empowered me to become more involved and fulfill my duty to help stop the genocide.
