You may think that a bone is just a part of the human anatomy, but for students at American University last week, it became so much more. On November 28th, the American University chapter of STAND held an all day One Million Bones Marathon. Through this event we are changing the way students learn about genocide.

Sometimes we get lost in numbers. 5.4 million dead in eastern Congo since 1996. 4 million displaced throughout Darfur. More than 70,000 children abducted by the LRA since 1987. These numbers are staggering, horrifying, and also important: statistics can spur authorities to action and lend credibility and gravity to reports on mass atrocities. But we cannot forget discrete acts of aggression toward individuals, within the scope of mass atrocity, if we plan to prevent it.

These two posts are written by Jasmin Kaur and Brian Browne, from George Washington University STAND. Jasmin and Brian were two of the students who helped hand deliver 777 letters to Bob Schieffer’s office, pressing him to ask the presidential candidates how they will prioritize mass atrocity prevention during tonight’s foreign policy debate.

On the rainy Tuesday evening of September 25th, ten members of Ohio University’s STAND chapter gathered to watch “Sudan and South Sudan 101: The Basics.” With some chocolate chip cookies and delicious zucchini bread in tow, we all met in our chapter leader’s self-proclaimed “man cave.” Aside from the discomfort that title invoked in some members, it ended up being a super successful bonding sesh for OU STAND.
