Genocide Intervention Network empowers individuals and communities with the tools to prevent and stop genocide. We envision a world in which the global community is willing and able to protect civilians from genocide and mass atrocities. Genocide Intervention Network is mobilizing a permanent anti-genocide constituency that lobbies our leaders for substantial action and creates a political cost for those officials who fail to take these necessary actions.
In the past, the United States and the international community have failed to prevent and stop genocide because of a lack of political will in our elected officials and among our citizens. There has been no political consequence for our leaders when they did not take action.
Our programs provide citizens with the resources to educate, organize, and advocate in their communities. GI-NET provides hands-on opportunities for citizens of the world to make genocide prevention a domestic political issue. We believe that if given the tools, all citizens of the global community can become daily active upstanders against genocide.
