This afternoon May 30th, at 3pm in Sem II A3107, we (Evergreen Hillel) have a meeting with Les Purce the President of Evergreen. All are invited to attend.

We want to thank all of you that helped to make Camp Darfur a great success. The response on campus was extremely positive and we can’t wait to work on similar events. For those of you wondering what is the next step, well there are plenty of ways to get involved and help out. You can refer to our Darfur Resources page, and contact us with any questions.

As the academic year comes to a close we would like to try and put together one last Hillel Shabbat. June 1st 2007, in Mod 303 B, we are thinking around 7:30pm…as usual it will be a potluck and Hillel will supply Challah and Kiddush . I hope to see you all there.

Thursday May 24th Camp Darfur will be on Evergreen’s campus.
Camp Darfur is an interactive awareness and education event that will bring attention to the ongoing genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and will give individuals the opportunity to discover their own power to make a difference. A traveling refugee camp coming to your community.

Camp Darfur will raise awareness and examine Sudan’s Darfur region of humanitarian crisis – genocide. A deeply concerned Southern California community will come together united as one voice to remember the victims of past genocides and to make a call to action to end the genocide in Darfur today.

For more information please check out Camp Darfur online.

I would like to thank David Lynn for coming to Evergreen and showing his documentary and helping us to understand the Genocide in Darfur. I also want to thank SESAME for co-sponsoring this event with us, I hope that this is the beginning of a long and prosperous alliance.
