Please join DWAG in its 5th Annual National Symposium on Women and Genocide in the 21st century. For the past seven years, Darfur Women Action Group (DWAG) has been working with its allies to bring awareness to the magnitude of the genocide in Darfur and particularly its impact on women. DWAG educates the public about these issues, empowering survivors and enable them to bring their voices to regional and international forums.
