Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist and Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist who was one of the first to report on mass atrocities occurring in Darfur. He continues to write extensively about international human rights abuses, including those occurring in Sudan and the Congo:
The Enough Project — an initiative working to end genocide and crimes against humanity, focused on areas where some of the world’s worst atrocities occur.
