Developing the political will that is needed to halt atrocities, hold perpetrators accountable, and redress victims requires an informed and engaged public. Young people and students can play a particularly important role in calling on their elected leaders to support justice for genocide and crimes against humanity. We use the Museum’s stage and platform to inform and inspire others—particularly students and the next generation of change-agents—to take action and to demand justice for genocide and crimes against humanity.
