Rwandan Genocide Survivor to Speak at Annual Human Rights Day Event

MCC's Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Project invites you to attend its celebration of Human Rights Day, a global event honoring the creation of the United National Declaration of Human Rights. The Project is honored to host as its keynote speaker Dydine Umunyana, author of Embracing Survival. This powerful memoir tells the story of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide against Tutsis at the hands of the Hutu perpetrators through the eyes of the four-year-old-child Umunyana was when the massacre occurred. In 2013, Umunyana was appointed a Youth Peace Ambassador for the Aegis Trust, an organization dedicated to the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities worldwide. Subsequently, in 2015, she became a Global Mentor for Peace at Serve to Unite, an organization that cultivates peace through creative service learning and global engagement.
