On June 8-11, thousands of volunteers dressed in white gathered on the National Mall in Washington D.C. to create a powerful visible protest against genocide and to raise awareness of mass atrocities in Sudan, Burma, Somalia, Syria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. One million bones, crafted by artists, students, and activists from around the world were laid out as a striking symbol of our common humanity. The field of bones between 3rd and 7th St. was evocative of a mass grave. The project was inspired by New Mexican based artist Naomi Natale. The bones were hand crafted by 100,000 people from every state and 30 countries from clay, plaster, paper and other materials
