FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A Fort Wayne professor is making an effort to have the violence of ISIS officially recognized as genocide.

John Morrow teaches foreign languages at Ivy Tech Community College and says he can’t stand still in the face of evil and injustice. He tells the News-Sentinel he’s part of an effort called the Genocide Initiative, which urges nations and human rights groups to admit ISIS’ murder of Christians and others in the Middle East is genocide.

Morrow says if the movement is successful, it’ll inspire nations to feel morally obligated to stop the terror group, including taking action against countries friendly to ISIS and what it stands for.
