Corey Dragge is the founder of a grass roots Darfur activist group call Champion Darfur. While using his website to educate people about the crisis in Darfur and to create a virtual community of engaged citizen activists on the West Coast, Corey has worked on the ground with STAND chapters in the San Francisco Bay area and in Las Vegas, Nevada. He recently organized a rally in front of the Federal Building in downtown Las Vegas, an event so successful that Champion Darfur received an invitation to meet the foreign affairs advisors for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Corey plans to use his Carl Wilkens Fellowship to develop a more robust anti-genocide movement within Las Vegas and across Nevada.
