April 2014 Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month
Once your consciousness shifts from strident accusation to nonjudgmental witnessing, something happens, and you begin to see patterns, not so much of right and wrong, but of wounding and healing. You begin to see more accurately that perpetration often has its roots in cycles of wounding. You begin to see the intergenerational transfer of wounds and deviance, and even begin to appreciate the historical ground in which animosity and hatred are fed and transmitted.

Remembering the Past toward Healing our Future
A free six-event commemorative film series featuring stories of survivors and their children
An April 2014 Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month get-together to note the end of
Remembering the Past toward Healing our Future.
You are invited to join the event organizers, volunteers, interns, campus faculty and staff, community partners, film series speakers and attendees as we gather together to share our most memorable experiences from the April events and begin to discuss ‘what’s next?’
Living Ubuntu, in collaboration with Amnesty International – Irvine, community partners and six local academic institutions, presents a free six-event commemorative film series featuring the stories of survivors and their children. April is Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month, and each film commemorates a genocide that started during April. Living Ubuntu provides education about global traumas as part of its mission to heal trauma in order to promote peace. All events are free and open to the public.
We have added a seventh event, after all six film events have taken place, a closing reception. All details are above.
Parking is free of charge in the University Synagogue parking lot. See map.
