From November 10-12, 2014, Mark travelled out to the University of Oregon to join faculty, students, and other experts from a variety of backgrounds to discuss how emerging and current technologies can be used to prevent and end genocide. This series of events and workshops was put together underneath the Univeristy's Genocide Prevention Initiative's Steering Committee.

Over a three-day period, the two UofO students pictured above spearheaded discussions around the design of a specific project that would empower anti-genocide efforts. Along the way, the working group also met with students to discuss a variety of topics with the Carnegie Global Oregon Ethics Program (CGO), graduate students, and 4J school district educators.
