Who We Are
Formed in 2008, the Sentinel Project is a non-profit organization based in Canada with members in several countries worldwide. Our mission is to prevent mass atrocities (including the crime of genocide) through effective early warning and cooperation with victimized peoples to carry out non-violent prevention initiatives.

What We Do
An estimated two hundred million people were murdered by governments during the twentieth century – many of them as victims of genocide. These calculated exterminations of ethnic, racial, and religious groups have taken the lives of Hereros, Armenians, Jews, Sinti and Roma, Cambodians, Kurds, Bosnians, Tutsis, and many others. The twenty-first century promises to be no different.
