Event: Sudan Conflict One Year On

Women’s Leadership, Impacts, and Ways Forward

One year on, the conflict in Sudan has left nearly 25 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, displaced more than eight million inside and outside of the country, and disproportionately affected women and girls.


Please join the Alliance for Peacebuilding, Refugees International, and Vital Voices for a hybrid event marking the one-year anniversary of the conflict. The event will feature opening remarks from and a moderated discussion with U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield and U.S. Special Envoy for Sudan Tom Perriello, followed by a panel of Sudanese women leaders to explore the gendered impacts of the conflict, the role of women’s leadership in the face of the crisis and opportunities for their influence on the peace process and the future of the country.


The in-person component will take place at Vital Voices’ offices, located at 1509 16th Street NW, Washington, DC 20036. The virtual component will take place over Zoom. Please select your preferred form of attendance when you register.
