Parker STAND - This team is made up of three young women who are enthusiastic and passionate about educating their community about genocide in Darfur and worldwide. One of the mechanisms they have designed to educate their peers and members of their community on this issue is to raise funds for anti-genocide causes. They have three large events planned for this year. The first event was a “community night”, held at O’ Naturals, a local restaurant. The girls raised more than $500 selling shirts and bracelets and will also receive a percentage of the restaurants proceeds. Their other two planned events are an all-school movie night and a benefit concert.
