Res. 413 commemorates and honors the lives of those affected, and expresses support for the people of Rwanda on this day. The resolution condemns ongoing atrocities perpetrated against civilians in Syria, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Sudan, and elsewhere, while strengthening the U.S. commitment to prevent future acts of genocide and mass atrocities.

April is designated as Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month each year, as it marks important anniversaries for multiple acts of genocide in the 20th century. Throughout the month, individuals and organizations join together to commemorate and honor victims and survivors, educate the public about past and contemporary genocides, and advocate for prevention against future mass atrocities. To support activists as they take action in their communities this April, the Enough Project has teamed up with partner organizations to create a Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month Toolkit.
