Gov 2.0 and Saving Sudan

Last week, Special Envoy to Sudan Gen. Scott Gration sat down with representatives from Save Darfur and the student network STAND for an unprecedented live Q&A, webcast directly from the White House website.



Save Darfur Coalition Executive Director Jerry Fowler and STAND Student Director Layla Amjadi were joined by Samantha Power -- now the National Security Council's Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs, but known more widely as the author of "A Problem from Hell": America and the Age of Genocide, a history of the United States' response to mass atrocities from Armenia to Rwanda. Power herself was an inspiration for many of the anti-genocide organizations which exist today, including the two that participated in this online exchange.
