John Prendergast, world renowned co-founder of the Enough Project and Salva Dut, founder of Water for South Sudan, shared a stage at Monroe Community College in Rochester, NY on March 4, 2013. The event was part of a day-long set of activities sponsored by The Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Project, a student organization at the college.

Prendergast engaged the audience to identify their personal "enough moment"  that moment that inspires a person to take action of whatever sort to make a difference in the world. He urged attendees to identify how they can help, citing Salva and Water for South Sudan as an example of local action with global impact.

In this video interview Prendergast talks about why it's important for people in developed countries to pay attention to what's happening in South Sudan. He endorses WFSS and its work as one of the most effective organizations working on the ground in South Sudan.
