The Texas State Legislature proclaimed April 2011 as Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month.  The first San Antonio Walk Against Genocide was held in April 2012.  This year we will continue to build on the precedent set by our legislature and hold the Second Annual San Antonio Walk Against Genocide, 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 second annual San Antonio Walk Against Genocide will take place on April 7, 2012 at Barshop Jewish Community Center.   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.
