Motivation. Determination. Character.

Because of the physical risks, we will not recruit. Volunteer candidates must come to us with the right combination of motivation, determination and character. Volunteer positions are available for field missions and domestic support for media outreach and fundraising.

One Who Decided

Once to every man and nation, comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side;
Some great cause, some great decision,
Offering each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever,
‘twixt that darkness and that light.

— Hymn sung at Bingham family gatherings in memory of Hiram Bingham IV, an American diplomat posted in France whose brave, unauthorized actions saved 2,500 French Jews in 1941.


"We will go where we need to go to protect civilians in conflict zones and to prevent or stop genocide."

We are not naive idealists. Most of us have international experience, much of it in Africa. We value experience, but also properly motivated individuals who are willing to learn. Because of the risks we will not recruit. Volunteer candidates must come to us.

We are reaching out, though, to like-minded citizens of the world who are frustrated with the status quo and who believe that more can and should be done to mitigate the risk of mass atrocity crimes against unarmed civilians, 90 percent of whom are women and children. Join us.

While they wrung their hands and made empty pronouncements, six years passed and more than 200,000 Darfuris died at the hands of others and almost 3,000,000 became homeless.

Our leaders take us nowhere. Join us. We are not waiting any longer.
