Contact Local Media!
Inform them on current events and genocides occurring or places at risk of genocide. Visit their Web sites, call them, and send e-mails prompting them to have better coverage on these major and under-reported issues, or to express your views about the importance of public attention to the story.
Go about this in a way you think will be effective. From benefit dinners to concerts, from selling various items to simply taking donations, ideas are endless. Make sure people know the purpose behind the event, and where the money will go.
Make a Pledge!
Make your own personal pledge on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website to take action against genocide. Share it with your friends and family and spread the word.
Spread the Word!
Spread the world about what you've learned with your friends, family, school, clubs, organizations you belong to, religious groups, and workers. Just spreading awareness alone can make a colossal difference! Talk to others about the situation, hold discussion groups, start a club in your school, make short documentaries, write letters and articles, do whatever you feel will reach people and inspire them to take action.
Organize a Lobby Visit!
Gather together a group of people and plan a meeting with your Congress representatives. Encourage them to support legislation aiding genocide relief efforts. The Save Darfur website has good materials on making your visit effective.
Support Relief Efforts!
Donate to local museums, educational efforts, and relief efforts to help them make a difference.

Keep Genocide In Your Thoughts!
Whatever you do, DO NOT forget. Tell others about the situation whenever you have the opportunity. Do what you can to end this atrocity and make it the final genocide in history. Hopefully, after this we can say, "Never again" and finally make it so.
