Student to educate church, school on genocide

Political science student Mark Hanis is making the trip to Orange County with the goal of telling people what they can do to help.

September 08, 2007|By Jessie Brunner

Earlier this week, Halverson and fellow members of Orange County for Darfur visited the office of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher — who represents Costa Mesa and serves on the Congressional Subcommittee on International Organizations, Human Rights and Oversight — to ask for protection for victims, punishment for perpetrators of violence and peace for all in Darfur.

She was pleased to report that Rohrabacher agreed to consider cosponsoring H.R. 2489, the Genocide Accountability Act of 2007, though she would like to see him and the entire U.S. government get involved in the crisis in more proactive ways.

“We’ve turned our eyes so many times and we have the ability to stop this, but we don’t want to put the money there,” she said.


“We can’t let something like this go by just because it is not in Costa Mesa or Orange County or the U.S.”
