HEAR FROM EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN ON THE FRONTLINES OF THE issues

As the UN warns that the world is ignoring the fact that genocide could be or has occurred in Sudan, the horrifying statistics of displacement, starvation and sexual violence from Sudan continue to mount.

In April, we sent a letter to David Cameron, the British Foreign Secretary, calling on the UK government to do more to end the war in Sudan.

And we’re not stopping there.

On 20th June, join us in our Global Feminism Series as we hear from our incredible panel of women who work on the frontlines of the crisis about the impact of the conflict on Sudanese women and girls, how they are responding and what could and should be done to support them.

Hosted by Christina Lamb OBE, a leading foreign correspondent renowned for her reporting on what war does to women, our amazing panel includes:

  • Reem Abbas, Sudanese feminist activist, researcher and writer
  • Mahasin Dahab, Sudanese feminist, peace, and social justice activist
  • Grace Dorong, South Sudanese feminist activist supporting Sudanese refugees

Join our emergency briefing on the crisis and let’s continue to #KeepEyesOnSudan!
