About Us

our story, our programs, and more

Operation Broken Silence is a nonprofit organization leading a global movement for peace and justice in Sudan through innovative programs.

We're a nonprofit made up of passionate and creative problem-solvers who believe that the world needs a radically different approach in fighting genocide. And we're building a global movement to do just that in Sudan. 

The world's approach to fighting genocide over the past several decades has relied entirely on governments and international institutions. While we believe these entities have a role to play in preventing and ending genocide, there's a huge problem with this approach: 99% of humanity is left on the sidelines. 

We're on a mission to change this. Our approach is to get people off of the sidelines and provide them ways to help that have a real impact. We create stunning documentary films, short videos, and photography that inspires people around the world to join our movement. Our movement then fundraises for our on-the-ground programs that rescue and empower Sudanese communities and advocates for governments to do their part in helping the Sudanese people. Our approach is working and it's scalable.
