The Lemkin Institute, the Anti-Genocide Coffee Break: A Multinational Podcast, and Genocide News Now! frequently mention ways you can help prevent genocide, address its consequences, stand in solidarity with victims, and promote long-term human security.

Use the links below to get more involved in the efforts to stop genocide around the world.

Syrian White Helmets

Support Syria's Heroes in the aftermath of the earthquake

Save Artsakh

Call or email the White House to require change in the situation in Artsakh.

Support Indigenous Self-Determination in the USA

Sign the petition asking US President Joseph Biden to protect the rights of indigenous children and families, which are currently being challenged by a case at the Supreme Court which seeks to declare unconstitutional the 1978 Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). The ICWA protected children from being removed from their tribal homelands by prioritizing native families in foster care and adoption processes.

Armenia Fund

In light of the recent unprovoked Azeri attack on Armenia, Armenia Fund is mobilising to help Armenian who need support now more than ever. Donate directly to the Fund to help "rebuild in a meaningful and responsible way".

Defend Native Children and Sovereignty

Right now, conservative states and fossil fuel lawyers intend to dismantle Indigenous rights and sovereignty by overturning the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) via a majority conservative Supreme Court. Please join the Lakota People's Law Project in asking President Biden to take immediate action — up to and including an Executive Order — protecting Native children and sovereignty. Federal agencies must allocate funding, dedicate human resources, and empower Native nations to create tribally-run child welfare programs and maintain our right to self-determination.

Sign a Petition to Pope Francis

This petition, created by the Massachusetts Catholics for Indigenous Rights in collaboration with CTA’s Indigenous Solidarity Collective, calls on Pope Francis, the USCCB, and the Canadian bishops to release all records of Catholic-run residential schools in the United States and Canada; actively support the process of identifying burial sites on residential school grounds; rematriate Indigenous human remains, artifacts, and objects to their appropriate communities; and create an action plan for addressing the 94 Calls to Action identified through the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Process by collaborating with Indigenous leadership. They release this petition in light of Pope Francis's July 24th visit to Canada.

The United States must condemn the Myanmar Junta

Sign your name to this petition and demand your elected officials to cosponsor new resolutions condemning Myanmar's military forces.

Amnesty International

"Chow Hang-tung, a young human rights lawyer, is imprisoned in Hong Kong for holding vigils to commemorate the victims of the Tiananmen Square crackdown. Demand freedom for Chow Hang-tung now."

Rohingya Refugee Crisis

Help fuel the Partners Relief & Development response to provide relief and promote access to healthcare and education for refugees in Bangladesh and displaced families who remain persecuted in Myanmar.

Free Yezidi Foundation
