Tufts Against Genocide (TAG) is a student group that was created out of the generosity and dedication of Bill and Joyce Cummings, who, through Tufts Hillel, founded the Cummings/Hillel Program for Holocaust & Genocide Education.
TAG strives to equip students with the tools to understand the root causes of genocide, advocate for prevention, understand the aftermath, and combat prejudice in our own communities today.
Each year, TAG’s student leaders educate and motivate the Tufts community with programs, events and campaigns on campus. Films, lectures, lunch and learns, educational campaigns and other on-campus events raise awareness and inspire action.
The center of the group’s activities is the annual survivors’ panel each spring. The panel brings together victims of genocides in countries such as Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Darfur, Armenia and the Holocaust. These first-hand witnesses share their stories, keeping their legacies alive, and inspiring the community to confront injustice around the world.
