Students and local activists read names of victims of genocides and mass atrocities on the USC campus for 24 hours from from 6 o'clock on April 2 to the same time the very next evening. The event was organized by the usc chapter, "STAND," in conjunction with the national organization #TogetherWeRemeber. Both work to raise awareness of genocides around the world.

"STAND" organizers say 60 students participated in the public reading throughout the 24 hour time period. More than 30 communities and universities from around the world also took part in similar name-reading events on Monday to commemorate the beginning of Genocide Awareness Month.
