Join Chhange to commemorate the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. This virtual commemoration will bring the Chhange community together to witness testimony from Yannick Tona and other Survivors of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi who are connected to Chhange.
Date: April 7, 2020
Time: 11:30 am

At the age of 4, Yannick survived the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. The genocide claimed more than 900,000 lives in 100 days. Yannick and his mother survived, a feat he believes can only be described as a miracle, but sadly many members of their family were murdered.
Yannick will share the story of his family’s struggle to survive the 1994 Genocide Against Tutsi in Rwanda, witnessing and experiencing prejudice at its most extreme, and share his subsequent determination and efforts to make the world a better place.
Co-Sponsored by The Holocaust Resource Center at Kean University
Held as part of the month-long Genocide Awareness Month virtual programming of the Together We Remember Coalition.
