Preventing Genocide

Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide


The Simon-Skjodt Center works to help governments, in the US and abroad, create institutional structures, tools, and policies to prevent genocide and other mass atrocities. It also builds the emerging field of genocide prevention by investing in research and expertise to understand the causes of genocide and how to prevent it. 

The Preventing Genocide Impact Fund provides critical resources to help the Simon-Skjodt Center continue to innovate and intensify its efforts to make the future different from the past.

“If we can help move this mission forward to address one of the most perplexing and heartbreaking issues, even a fraction, then we will have accomplished something meaningful for future generations.” —Cindy Simon Skjodt, Samerian Foundation
