How can I do anything about it?
EndGenocide.org
“Never Again!” That’s what leaders in the United States and throughout the world declared after the Holocaust. Yet tragically, in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur millions of people lost their lives, lost their families or were forced to flee their homes. History doesn't have to keep repeating itself. The powerful movement in response to the Darfur genocide showed us that by acting together, we can compel our elected leaders to act on their responsibility to protect innocent men, women and children from brutal regimes. We believe that, working together, we can prevent mass atrocities and we can end genocide by:
  • Sounding the alarm and demanding action;
  • Stopping the enablers of genocide and mass atrocities; and
  • Making genocide prevention a core value in U.S. foreign policy.
Genocide Prevention Task Force (Part of the US Holocaust Museum):
The Genocide Prevention Task Force was launched in November 2007, and released its report to the public on December 8, 2008. Co-chaired by Madeleine K. Albright and William S. Cohen, the task force was co-convened by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, The American Academy of Diplomacy, and the US Institute of Peace, and it was funded by private foundations. Its purpose was to spotlight genocide prevention as a national priority, and develop practical policy recommendations to enhance the capacity of the US government to respond to emerging threats of genocide and mass atrocities.

MOCK AP Practice Test - Spring

Great job on the first MOCK Test for AP World History this spring. 
We'll take our second MOCK Test on Tuesday next week at 7:30 am in the Gym. I'm looking forward to seeing scores improve. I know with test corrections, review, studying those questions that we the most missed, and just getting a second chance to take an exam like this that scores will go up.

Keep working. The AP Test will be here before you know it.
