Right now, millions of people in Sudan are facing one of the most violent and oppressive military regimes in the world.

Operation Broken Silence is building a global movement to empower the Sudanese people through innovative programs as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

We create stunning documentary films, photography exhibits, and events that mobilize people around the world to raise support for Sudanese-led programs.
Education & Emergency Relief
We partner funds raised by our movement with local Sudanese change makers to empower their education and humanitarian relief efforts. And they make the big program decisions, not us.
We design grassroots campaigns that equip activists in our home state of Tennessee to successfully engage their communities and political leaders.

The 8th annual Soirée For Sudan

Join us at our annual Gala on March 28, 2020 for a night to remember. The celebration begins at the Memphis Grand Carousel at 7PM.

This evening of hope benefits the Endure Primary and Renewal High Schools in Yida Refugee Camp. These two incredible schools are funded by Operation Broken Silence. We've put 24 Nuba teachers back to work here. They run the show, not us. The nearly 1,200 children who attend these two incredible schools are not charged fees. Both schools are the only stable place for students who have grown up in war.

Soirée For Sudan is a black tie event. This year’s theme is inspired by Cirque du Soleil. Ladies, you will show up in vibrant evening gowns and cocktail dresses. Gents, you'll need a nice suit or tuxedo and a brightly-colored tie. Masks, feathers, and face paint are all optional. Dress sharp.

 The ballroom will be full of bold colors, aerialist performers, and more. The event makes for a breathtaking date night, and it is just as fun for a group of friends.

History is made by those who show up. Join us in empowering the Sudanese people. Every voice counts.
