Be A Voice For Darfur

To all our American readers and friends:

The appalling genocide in Darfur continues – now in its sixth year and at the price of nearly half a million lives. Ironically, December 9th marks the 60th anniversary of the United Nations’ Genocide Convention, and Darfuri people are still suffering and struggling to survive. As the Obama administration ushers in a new era of foreign policy, this nation has an opportunity – an obligation – to aid our global neighbors in Darfur. You, an influential voice in the faithful community, can play a pivotal role in making this happen . . .

The Save Darfur Coalition’s "Be A Voice For Darfur" postcard campaign seeks to ensure that Darfur is a top priority for President-elect Obama, who has already promised “unstinting resolve” to end the Darfur Genocide. We aim for no less than 1 million postcards to be emailed and snail-mailed to President-elect) Obama within his first 100 days in office. With your help, we can draw desperately-needed political attention to the ongoing genocide in Darfur.

Can we ask you to add your voice? It takes only moments – please sign the pledge. Most importantly, you can influence others to stand up and be a voice for Darfur. Simply spread the word through your personal networks.
With thanks to Mike Nelson of Livingston Communications.
