Parent Organization: Service, Political, and Social Action Groups
Student Action for Conflict Awareness (SACA) seeks to promote education and action related to mass atrocities and human rights violations in the Central African conflict zones. We educate the Brown community as well as the larger Providence community, fundraise for civilian protection and humanitarian aid, and engage our local and national elected officials. Our past activites have included hosting regional conferences, attending rallies in Washington D.C., hosting benefit concerts, and successfully passing legislation by lobbing elected officials at the state house. We are currently working with the Brown administration to pass resolutions to encourage the responsible mining of minerals in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which otherwise contribute greatly to funding the deadliest war in the world.
SACA welcomes newcomers throughout the year. Feel free to email our primary contact for more information.
