During this 19th anniversary commemoration period of the Rwanda genocide, which began on April 6, 1994, we remember the victims, hundreds of thousands of Tutsis slaughtered alongside tens of thousands of pacifist Hutus. To honor the survivors and remember the victims we shared our documentary film, Coexist at a commemoration event in Portland, Maine on Sunday, April 7th. This is a newspaper article on the event.
Coexist is a documentary and educational outreach project in use by more than 3,000 schools and community organizations in 50 states and more than a dozen countries. Our project includes a 40-minute film on the challenges of reconciliation in Rwanda after genocide and a four-lesson Teacher's Guide, which can be used in the classroom and in support of positive school climate campaigns, to counter bullying, and to encourage positive choices to prevent violence.
