HUMANITY IS US™ Act against Genocide

Hey Guys! A new friend I made recently has an organization to raise awareness against trafficking and genocides. Check it out and help spread the Word! ~CHUMANITY IS US™ spreads awareness of crimes against humankind and provides reliable resources for the protection of humanity. We are responsible for ending genocide, violence against men and women, rape camps, child abuse and human trafficking. Here is a message from my friend Kim: I created my first video for Humanity Is Us (my non-profit awareness campaign to end genocide). Recently, I was fortunate enough to be invited to a special meeting hosted by the ICC (International Criminal Court) held at the UN Plaza. All the big NGOs, like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, were there and little 'ole me. Ann Curry updated us on the situation in Sudan; Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the Prosecutor of the ICC, required each person at the meeting to “introduce yourself, tell me what you’ve done and what you’re going to do to arrest Bashir.”

When I was a kid, I remember seeing the photos of the Holocaust and feeling so upset that no one stopped it; I remember thinking that if I was an adult during that time, I would have done something. It is a rude awakening to learn that as adult, genocides have occurred during my lifetime and I did nothing: 800,000 people were slaughtered in 100 days in Rwanda. There were rape camps in Bosnia where women were raped for years. In Darfur the Janjaweed forced women to climb trees and then, lit them on fire. When the men tried to rescue them, the men were shot and women were burned alive. Bashir is on the brink of committing his fourth genocide and we have the power to stop him. I can no longer ignore genocide. I spent the last 18 months gathering reliable information on this issue and realized that genocide is preventable.

Please watch the video on my wall and share it with your friends; it's called, "What is Genocide?" It's the first step. We have the power to end impunity and create legal precedent. We can change the world where adults are accountable for their actions. If you want to continue this journey with me, please let me know and I will add your email to a list. You can also subscribe to "humanityisus" on Youtube, like Humanity Is Us on FB or follow on Twitter (@humanityisus). Here are some links:
