Inaugural Distinguished Speakers Program - Lt.- Gen. Romeo Dallaire
The Courage to Do what is Right:  From the HELL of Rwanda to the PLIGHT of Syrian Refugees

Lt.-Gen. Roméo Dallaire was the head of the UN Peacekeeping force
in Rwanda during the 1994 genocide. After it began, along with a
small team, he decided to remain in Kigali's hell and, as a result, saved 30,000 Rwandans. A man of action, a voice of conscience and a humanitarian hero, during this empowering evening he will share his experiences and the ethical and practical challenges he faced in East Africa. While reflecting on what led to his morally courageous decision in 1994, he will also share his insights into the current humanitarian crises the world is facing with Syrian refugees.

Lt. Gen. Dalliare challenges all of us to think about who we are and what we do for others in the decisions we make on a daily basis. He asks us to become advocates for all human beings. In his own words, "Are all humans human...or are some more human than
others? Now is the time to take up the cause of the advancement of human rights for all and the moment is yours to grasp."
