April 6 is International Day of Sport for Peace. April is also Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month. This year’s national theme is ‘Moving Beyond Witness.’

Let’s use these two incredible opportunities to move your community beyond being a witness to genocide and mass atrocities and into action through a Kicks and Hope soccer tournament and Action Fair.

STAND chapters, schools, soccer teams, and communities around the world will organize a one day, 4 vs 4 tournament, provide education and action opportunities for participants and fans to end genocide, and raise funds to provide joy, hope, and trauma recovery to Darfuri refugee children living in isolated camps in eastern Chad and support peacebuilding initiatives in the Central African Republic.
