On Wednesday November 12, four large boxes arrived in the student union office at Brandeis University. The next morning members of the Brandeis STAND: A Student Anti-Genocide Coalition chapter began assembling the contents of these boxes into large tents. By the time three tents were assembled, the fifth box had arrived.
The tents were assembled in the Shapiro Campus Center. Many students and professors pass through this area at some point throughout the day. A large portion of these people stopped by to visit the tents. In addition Mark Auslander, a professor from the anthropology department at Brandeis, and Sabina Carlson, the education coordinator for STAND gave inspiring speeches. The tents were up for most of the day to raise awareness and spark action to stop the genocide in Darfur.
Camp Darfur at Brandeis was a great success!
