Evening sunlight streamed through the tremendous pane windows of the Woman’s Club of Minneapolis, illuminating an event that was shining a light on a vast international problem.

The event was Local to Global: Building a World Without Genocide, a benefit celebrating human-rights advocates and emerging leaders working to combat the horrors of genocide around the world.
