The Washington DC Walk to End Genocide is hosted by the Darfur Interfaith Network in partnership with Jewish World Watch.
The 3rd Annual Washington DC Walk to End Genocide took place Sunday, April 23, 2017 and was a great success. Thanks to all those who came out to take one step at a time to fight genocide and mass atrocities, and those who supported the Walk but could not be there. We were particularly thrilled to have so many Sudanese and South Sudanese diaspora members as our guests. And congratulations to Ben Scheck, an 8th grader who won the Walk to End Genocide essay contest! A special shout-out to Ben’s teacher Rani Schlenoff who did not stand idly by.
As always, it takes a village to make an amazing event like the DC Walk to End Genocide happen. Special thanks to our incredible program participants, including Congressman Jamie Raskin, Rabbi Sunny Schnitzer, Komi Elaiser from the Nuba Mountains International Association, Adeeb Yousif and Rebecca Pearson Cooper from the World Peace and Reconciliation Organization, and our own Mike Brand, JWW’s Director of Advocacy and Programs.
