April is Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month.
Genocide, mass atrocities, and crimes against humanity are often linked to kleptocrats fomenting violence in nations they are supposed to lead. Perpetrators in Congo, Sudan, and elsewhere use various international financial systems to fuel conflict and sustain their own hold on power.
This April, take a stand.
To create the pressure necessary to change calculations of those carrying out mass human rights abuses, the U.S. and others must do everything possible to go after what matters to perpetrators: their wallets. In many places, past policy approaches have failed to counter the ability to finance conflict and to remain in power. We need a new approach and new tools to counter those who commit these unconscionable crimes.
