Public Affairs Specialist and Adjunct Professor of International and Public Affairs Columbia University
Tanya Domi has joined the board of Our Humanity in the Balance recognizing the failure of the International Community to effectively stop the ongoing genocide and violence toward the Darfuri people at the hands of a despotic and unchecked government.
While the world and the institutions established to prevent genocide have stood by, hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians have been butchered, displaced, raped and executed.
Indeed, many non-governmental organizations have done their best to advocate for those who are suffering in Darfur.
But even those valiant efforts have fallen short of protecting the innocent.
Ms. Domi is not naive about war or suffering, having served in the U.S. Army and as a legislative aide in Congress, as well as worked in a dozen countries, including post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina implementing the Dayton Peace Accords.
says, "The world witnessed slaughter in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Rwanda, as well as the ongoing senseless murders in the Democratic Republic of the Congo-and yet very little, if nothing was or is done to stop the killing and ease suffering causing irreparable mental and physical anguish to millions of survivors.
"Never Again" has become a well-worn but empty phrase, uttered repeatedly by those with power, although they lack the requisite political will to exercise such power that will end suffering".
So it is with a commitment to protecting those who have no protectors in Darfur, Tanya joined Our Humanity in the Balance.
