The Darfur Student Movement: Defeating a Giant

By Erin Mazursky

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2007

The author describes how students have helped take Darfur from an obscure issue to one that is now recognized as one of the world's most pressing problems. He describes his efforts to lobby Congress and unite students to stop genocide through STAND: A Student Anti-Genocide Coalition. He concludes that while there have been many victories in this fight, we have not yet shaken the denial and despair of the international community; we must continue to draw hope from the belief that this world can and should exist without genocide.
