Recipient, Minnesota Ethical Leadership Award
This annual three-day institute explores the connection between genocide and other human rights abuses. Learn leadership strategies to take local and global action to address these issues. Meet survivors and activists.
Children are always uniquely involved and affected by genocide. They are some of the first victims of displacement, starvation, and abuse. Children can be used to perpetrate genocide and influence international human rights law as the future of peace.
The 2017 Institute explores children’s experiences during the Holocaust, the genocides in Rwanda, Guatemala and the Native Americans, and current crisis in Sudan. Students will participate in a mock trial, partake in a peace simulation, hear from survivors of conflict, learn skills to become human rights leaders, and more.
Program Fee: $150
Includes all meals and snacks, t-shirt, World Without Genocide bag, a series of human rights-related books, and Summer Institute curriculum materials.
