Release and Sales[edit]

The Enough Moment details the efforts of both famous and unknown citizen activists, referred to as “Upstanders,” as they work to combat genocide, sexual violence, and child soldierdom in Africa.[1] The book aims to further fuel public demand for an end to the genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan, the sexual violence in Congo resulting from the deadly trade in conflict minerals, and child soldier recruitment in northern Uganda. The book offers harrowing accounts of how victims of these atrocities have found the strength to help other survivors.[2] The book also describes the actions that U.S. citizens have taken to aid those suffering from human rights abuses and provides practical ways in which ordinary citizens can get involved and make a difference. The book was published by Random House on September 7, 2010.[1]
