Waging Peace: Why Genocide Keeps Happening
Rebecca Tinsley, Human Rights Activist; Author
Michael Pappas, Executive Director, San Francisco Interfaith Council—Moderator
Tinsley, who graduated with a law degree from the London School of Economics and was a political reporter for the BBC will primarily discuss the work of Waging for Peace, a project she started after visiting a Darfur refugee camp at the height of the killing there. She collects evidence of human rights abuses and helps Sudanese dissidents who wish to claim asylum.
Tinsley also started Network for Africa to help survivors of genocide and former child soldiers rebuild their lives. In recognition of her work, President and Mrs. Carter invited Tinsley and her husband Henry, to start the Carter Center in Europe.
