One Million Bones Project Brings Awareness To Genocide
AIR DATE: October 17, 2012
Cases of genocide in other countries do not always get a lot of media attention here in Las Vegas. But a group of locals is working to change that. Clay Arts Vegas has partnered with the One Million Bones Project, a national initiative designed to bring awareness to genocide in African nations. Organizations around the nation are creating one million clay "bones" to put on display in Washington in the Spring. The hope is 7,000 of those clay bones will be created here in southern Nevada.

It's also important to help others where it is possible. I commend this young lady for taking the initiative to really talk about such a sensitive project and implement it to the diverse communtiy of Las Vegas.James Shelly –Oct 15, 2012 15:23:42 PM
It is important to remember that genocides are often democides (death by the hands of one's own government), and far more people have died from democide than wars and such; the latest estimates for 20th century democide is on the order of 200 million people. So, beware the State, despite its feel-good propaganda!Tom Hurst –Oct 15, 2012 13:38:02 PM
