World Without Genocide educates about past and current conflicts and advocates at the local, state, and national levels for policies and legislation to protect innocent people, prevent genocide, prosecute perpetrators, and remember those whose lives have been affected by genocide. Our intent is nothing less than to create a global commitment that will make mass killing and genocide no longer possible.
