Humanity in the Midst of Conflict
American Red Cross Offering International Humanitarian Law Course
International humanitarian law, which includes the Geneva Conventions, is at the core of the global Red Cross network. It is critical to preserving a minimum of humanity in the worst of circumstances. The American Red Cross will be offering a four-hour course on the role of the Red Cross in times of armed conflict. The course is free to the public and addresses the humanitarian aspect of the American Red Cross.
Instructor, Kerri Hah, brings over 10 years of experience educating the public and has trained hundreds of school children on the subject matter of Humanitarian Law.
The Red Cross actively promotes tolerance and humanitarian values. In times of national crisis or war, all segments of the public must feel confident that they can turn to the Red Cross for help, or to volunteer their time, talents and resources.
