Since the anniversaries of a number of genocides fall in April, April has been designated as the Genocide Awareness and Prevention month.
This April, Jacqueline Murekatete, founder and president of Genocide Survivors Foundation (GSF), participated in a number of activities marking a number of these anniversaries. She was the keynote speaker at the Yom HaShoah commemoration at Temple Israel in New York and participated in and as well as helped to organize a number of commemorative activities for the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.
Additionally, Ms. Murekatete also participated in a USC Shoah foundation discussion with survivors and children of survivors of the Armenian genocide, the genocide in Rwanda and the genocide in Guatemala, and she also joined the Kansas and surrounding communities in their Seven Days campaign which marked the anniversary of last April’s anti-Semitic shooting in Overland Park, Kansas, and held discussions about the dangers of hate and all forms of bigotry.« Back to News + Blog
