Stop Genocide

The One Million Bones project is designed to be a visible petition to remember victims and recognize the survivors who have been killed or displaced by ongoing genocides and humanitarian crises in Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, and Burma.

Stop Genocide

Artists, activists, and students across the country are creating “bones” from clay or other materials through the One Million Bones project. In the spring of 2013, one million bones will be installed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

A workshop at Penn State Berks shows students making bones from clay for the project.
