Area of Focus: Darfur, Sudan
Location: Des Moines
Kristen Anderson has been a member of Des Moines for Darfur since 2007 and views the Carl Wilkens Fellowship as an opportunity to broaden the anti-genocide constituency throughout central Iowa. Kristen will be working to develop a network of activists and volunteers spanning across multiple ages and backgrounds in order to raise awareness of the crisis in Darfur and to advocate for genocide prevention as a United States foreign policy priority. She welcomes anyone interested in joining the movement to contact her directly.
