Project Dignity Featured on March 12 Truth To Tell

In the aftermath of International Women’s Day, Truth toTell features a Twin Cities –based effort to support women who have been raped or sexually assaulted by the Myanmar military.  Teaming-up with Action Aid USA, local organizers are raising funds to supply Dignity Kits for women and girls in refugee camps in Bangladesh.  The kits include a change of clothes, sanitary pads, clean underwear, slippers, soap, disinfectant and a solar lantern.

Since August 25, 2017, more than 680,000 Rohingyan refugees have crossed into Bangladesh fleeing violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State. Truth toTell highlights this inspiring effort to support women and girls in the camps and explores the underlying causes of the genocidal campaign against them. Guests include: Dr. Jim Gambone, filmmaker, intergenerational organizer, and part-time graduate professor of Public Health, Marie Clarke, Executive Director of ActionAid USA and Ellen Kennedy, Executive Director of World Without Genocide.
