    Join the Enough Project and Jewish World Watch for The Lemkin Summit to End Genocide and Mass Atrocities, this year’s 3-Day conference bringing students and community leaders at the forefront of the anti-atrocity movement to D.C. for a weekend of learning and action. Together, we will hear from expert panels and guest speakers on topics including:

    • U.S. government tools for preventing and responding to genocide and mass atrocities
    • Financial tools to counter the nexus of conflict and corruption
    • The current dynamics in various conflicts areas
    • Strategies for making a difference when you return home

    Participants will network with one another, receive advocacy training, and learn how to leverage their networks to engage their communities and policymakers in taking action. The conference will culminate in a lobby day on Capitol Hill.

    The Lemkin Summit is named in honor of Raphael Lemkin, a Polish-Jewish lawyer who was an ardent activist and tireless defender of human rights. Lemkin coined the term “genocide” in 1944, lobbied the UN for genocide to be added to international law, and participated in the drafting of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.


    * Participants are expected to attend the full conference.


    Registration Fee covers training, materials, and most meals; accommodations are not included.

    • Regular rate: $150
    • Student and Young Professional (under 25) rate: $50


    A limited amount of travel stipends will be available to students coming from outside D.C. to subsidize their travel costs. To apply for a travel stipend, please indicate your interest in the application below.

    Accepted applicants will be notified by early December.
