Network for Africa and Waging Peace: Helping Forgotten Victims of Violence

Rebecca Tinsley, who graduated from the London School of Economics and was a BBC reporter, became a humanitarian after reporting on the war in Darfur. She will discuss her work for Waging Peace, the first nongovernmental organization (NGO) she founded. She will also discuss Sudanese dissidents and her second NGO, Network for Africa, which helps forgotten survivors (e.g., former child soldiers in Uganda) as well as communities torn apart by war and genocide. She will sign copies of her novel, When the Stars Fell to Earth, which is centered around the conflict in Darfur.
