Rebecca Tinsley founded the human rights group Waging Peace after visiting Darfur at the height of the killing in 2004. Waging Peace collects evidence of human rights abuses in Sudan for the International Criminal Court. It pressures decision-makers to implement UN Security Council resolutions on Sudan, and helps prevent Sudanese political dissident refugees being deported back to Sudan. Ms. Tinsley also founded the charity Network for Africa, which helps survivors of genocide rebuild their lives. She supports 10 projects in Rwanda and Northern Uganda. Ms. Tinsley has a law degree from the London School of Economics, is a former BBC politics reporter, a freelance journalist, and author of three novels. At President Carter's suggestion, she and her husband set up the Carter Center in Europe.

About TAPi
The Tamil American Peace Initiative was formed by a group of Tamil Americans to help bring lasting peace, justice, democracy, good governance and economic development to Sri Lanka; to focus attention on the destruction of Tamil communities and culture caused by almost three decades of war; and to demand an end to the continuing oppression of Tamils on the island.
