Description:

If you care about issues of genocide and other mass atrocities, but you just don’t know what to do and you truly want to make a difference, this book was written for you.

Mass murder. Rape. Torture. Starvation. The brutality of civil war in places like Sudan, Northern Uganda, Congo, and Somalia seems far away and impossible to solve. Six million graves have been freshly dug during the last couple of decades in this modern-day holocaust, and many millions of people have been driven from their homes.

You’ve heard the bad news. But the good news is that these horrors can  be stopped. It is in our hands:  citizen action in the United States and around the world can make a huge difference to the protection and survival of entire communities and peoples.

Angered by the devastating violence that has engulfed Darfur and other war zones in Africa, famed actor Don Cheadle teamed up with leading human-rights activist John Prendergast to shine a haunting spotlight o these atrocities. Here, they candidly reveal heart-wrenching personal accounts of their experiences visiting Darfur and Northern Uganda, and highlight the stories of extraordinary people across our country who are saying that genocide and other mass atrocities should not be allowed to occur. “Not on Our Watch!”

The book outlines six inspiring strategies that every one of us can adopt to help bring about change:  Raise Awareness, Raise Funds, Write a Letter, Call for Divestment, Start an Organization, and Lobby the Government. Simple, but powerful.

No personal action is too small. For the sanctity of the human race, it is imperative that we not stand idly by as innocent civilians in Darfur and other war zones continue to be victims of unthinkable brutality.

Take a stand. Raise your voice. Find out how you can make a difference. The time to act is now.
