This Portal allows you to have a face-to-face conversation with someone in another part of the world—as if you are standing in the same room. Through this installation, you will be able to converse in real time with people who have fled genocidal crimes of ISIS in Northern Iraq and the war crimes of Syria’s Assad regime and found refuge in Iraq, Jordan, and Germany.
The Portal is a part of the Museum's exhibition Genocide: The Threat Continues, which focuses on the efforts of the Museum’s Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide to bring attention to the people and places at risk today for genocide and other mass atrocities
During the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Silicon Valley (June 22-24), Google for Entrepreneurs is hosting Portals at the Summit at Stanford and three of its entrepreneurship hubs around the world in Mexico City, London, and Seoul. During the Summit, Portals will connect policy makers, entrepreneurs, and innovators with each other.
On June 20, we will be launching a Portal at the United Nations in New York City! Many thanks to Bridges of Understanding, UNMC, UNICEF, UNDP and the UN. More information to come. Mark your calendars.
