New York, NY

 

Join us for a reception with Lt. General (Ret.) Roméo Dallaire, former commander of the U.N. Assistance Mission for Rwanda, award-winning author, and founder of The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative, followed by a showing of the film Fight like Soldiers Die like Children at 7 p.m. in Room 311, with a discussion afterwards with General Dallaire, former child soldier and Executive Director, United Africans for Women and Children’s Rights, Grace Akallo and special guests.

As the Force Commander of the U.N. Mission for Rwanda during the 1994 genocide General Dallaire urgently requested support from the U.N. that, if heeded, could have halted the genocide. General Dallaire is now a Senator in the Canadian Parliament.

The Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative (The Initiative) is a global partnership committed to ending the use and recruitment of child soldiers worldwide through ground-breaking research, advocacy and security-sector training such as the five-year program the Initiative is presently presenting in Sierra Leone.

The film Fight Like Soldiers Die Like Children, inspired by General Dallaire’s book, chronicles the journey of General Dallaire back to Africa on his mission to end the use of child soldiers.

Sponsored by the NY City Bar’s Committee on African Affairs (Chair, Christina Holder) and the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice at Fordham Law School (Executive Director, Elisabeth Wickeri) and co-sponsored by the City Bar’s Committees on International Human Rights (Chair, Elisabeth Wickeri) and Children and the Law (Chair, Randall Carmel)
