Check out the Facebook event.

Stanford STAND is a student-led human rights activist and advocacy organization on campus.  We seek to end and prevent genocides in the world around us. To that end, we focus on the current genocide in Sudan as well as the mass atrocities currently occurring in the DR Congo and in Burma. We also are working for the creation of a permanent anti-genocide constituency to ensure that genocide prevention becomes an institutionalized foreign policy issue. We work on the Stanford campus, in the local Bay Area, and in Washington D.C., using a three-pronged approach: advocacy, awareness, and fundraising.
