Back The Darfur Compromised Campaign

Posted by OBS Team on December 3rd, 2015

This play is a theatrical look back at the events that led to the Darfur Genocide, an interrogation of the inaction of the present, and a call to action regarding the future of Sudan. Featuring scenes right out of history, it will help teach those who are unfamiliar with the tragedy as well as reinvigorate those who know it all too well.

The makers of the Darfur Compromised are partnering with Operation Broken Silence to tour the play and raise money to fully fund one of our classrooms. You can help do both by contributing to the Indiegogo campaign today: indiegogo.com/projects/send-the-darfur-compromised-abroad#/
