The Auschwitz Institute for the Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities (AIPG) is a non-governmental organization that, through education, training, and technical assistance, supports States to develop or strengthen policies and practices for the prevention of genocide and other mass atrocities. We also encourage and support the cooperation of States through regional and international networks to advance prevention. More than seven decades after the Holocaust, genocide and other mass atrocities remain a threat to world peace and security. Effective genocide prevention requires a multi-dimensional approach to education that is built on the promotion and protection of civil and human rights. The Auschwitz Institute’s programs are carefully designed by experts in the field to provide comprehensive training for policymakers and the security sector to forge networks of cooperation across the globe. You can read about our work and all our programs on the AIPG website.
The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is a museum and human rights institution in Atlanta, Georgia. Our museum’s permanent exhibitions present: US civil rights history, the contemporary struggle for human rights around the world, and the papers and artifacts of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (in partnership with Morehouse College). Our education programs provide schools with curricular and other resource materials that promote critical thinking about US history and its ongoing relevance. Our community engagement programs—conversations, events and performances—bring together experts to address advancing rights, civic participation, and protecting democratic ideals. In our leadership programs, we train police departments on how the promotion and protection of human rights plays a role in the prevention of human rights abuses. We also train corporations, government agencies and nonprofit organizations on how to ensure their workplaces are diverse, equitable and inclusive.
