United to End Genocide. N.p., n.d. Web. 6 Jan. 2013. <http://www.endgenocide.net>. United to End Genocide is a great public awareness website that allows people to learn about genocide. There is a page dedicated to countries currently at risk of genocide, as well as a page dedicated to recent news about those countries, and others that are recovering from genocide. United to End Genocide also allows people to give monetary donations that will go to relief funds for people who have been affected by genocide. I used this site to learn about genocide in general and, specifically, the genocide in North Korea. I also found a video titled "Who We Are" that I was able to incorporate into my project (http://endgenocide.org/who-we-are/).
