Yida Photo Exhibit Showing At University of Memphis Results

what the exhibit accomplished in the UofM community

Posted by on September 19th, 2017

Last week, the Yida Photography Exhibit was at the University of Memphis for another public showing! Here are the results:

Throughout the week, we had great discussions with faculty, students, and entire classes about Sudan, our work there, and how various academic studies play into what we do. This was also the exhibit's largest showing to date. 

We would like to thank the University of Memphis, International Studies program, and the African Student Association  for hosting us and helping to promote the exhibit. Thank you! And a big thanks to the volunteers who helped us setup and breakdown the exhibit!

Here's a few photos from the showing:

The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide. Operation Broken Silence is working to accelerate their ability to generate lasting change through media and mobilization, education and emergency response, and advocacy programs. Here's a few ways you can join us:

1. Join The Renewal. The best way to support the Sudanese people is to join The Renewal. This is an automatic monthly giving program that directly supports our empowering work in Sudan. It’s like your monthly subscription to a video, music, or internet cable service, but it supports others! WATCH THE TRAILER »
