In 2011, the Texas State Legislature proclaimed April as Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month. The first San Antonio Walk Against Genocide was held in April 2012 and has been held annually since then. The Fourth Annual San Antonio Walk Against Genocide will be held in April 2015, where people of all ages and backgrounds will gather to walk with genocide survivors. The goal of the walk is to inform and engage the San Antonio Community about genocide and mass atrocities happening in the world today.
The Fourth Annual San Antonio Walk Against Genocide will take place on April 12, 2015, 2:00-4:00pm at the Campus of the San Antonio Jewish Community, 12500 N.W. Military Hwy. The Walk will commemorate the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Walk will be held rain or shine! We will move inside in case of rain.
Organizations working in the areas of conflict resolution, peace-building and genocide awareness/prevention will have tables where Walk participants can educate themselves and learn how to get involved. Funds raised will support the San Antonio Coalition Against Genocide to further support genocide prevention and other groups working to help survivors of genocide.
If your organization would like to be involved, please contact us.
