Make “Never Again” mean Never. Again.

Genocides don’t just “happen.” They are the product of incremental –but perceivable – policies of targeted hate. Join us on our transcendent discoveries from horror to healing. During our student teacher educational travel, witness the ultimate renaissance and the triumph of hope. Understand the roots of prejudice and discrimination from courageous souls with an unimaginable past. In Cambodia, where the Khmer Rouge once-targeted artists and intellectuals for execution, we dance with survivors who know: Art. Saves. Lives. In Rwanda, cooperative projects uniting Hutu and Tutsi together teach us about the power of forgiveness. Creative itineraries balance darkness and light, exposing students to key sites memorializing the past and celebrating recovery. Program Leaders use Facing History and Ourselves curriculum for empathy-building in our communities at home.

“Walking through Tuol Sleng Prison showed me a passage into the dark crevices of human capability. As I saw the photo displays of the victims, rows upon rows of faces, all with the haunting look of knowledge, terrible knowledge of their imminent demise.  I realized how, no matter how “civilized” we appear, humans are capable of the worst imaginable things. Who could bear to witness those faces, fraught with fear of their own fate, and go on unaffected? It was in that moment I knew my purpose: I must dedicate my life to justice.”
