Event on Wednesday

Some ACS folks are helping to put this together. Its not an ACS event, but I thought I would share the info.

BENEFIT CONCERT
TO PREVENT HOTEL DARFUR
 
A preventable humanitarian crisis, affecting more than two million people, is raging in the Darfur region of western Sudan right this minute. Not since the Rwanda genocide of 1994 has the world seen such a calculated campaign of slaughter, rape, starvation and displacement. Government-backed militias, known collectively as the Janjaweed, are systematically eliminating entire communities of African tribal farmers. Villages are being razed, women and girls raped and branded, men and boys murdered, and food and water supplies targeted and destroyed.
 
WE CAN NOT REMAIN SILENT

Join New Yorkers as we celebrate local musicians and heighten awareness about this dire situation.
 
Wednesday, April 13th 8:00pm
