As far removed from modern day Indiana as genocide may seem, several people within the community have experienced firsthand the horrors of such beastly reality. And this awareness has helped plant the seeds of the city's first Genocide Prevention Summit planned for this Saturday, March 31, at the Interchurch Center located at 1100 W. 42nd St. Local resident KizitoKalima will discuss his experiences surviving the 2004 genocide in Rwanda and emphasize his position that the genocide was preventable and "it must be prevented from happening again ... politicians and concerned citizens in Indiana can make a difference." Don Kraus of Citizens for Global Solutions will keynote. The event will also feature local photographer Katie Basbagil's exhibit on "IndyRefugee" about local members of Burma's Karen ethnic group, another people afflicted by the ravages of genocide.
