Since February 2003, the Sudanese government's genocidal campaign in Darfur has claimed over 400,000 lives and driven two million people from their homes. Further tragedy could be averted if the United Nations would take a more active role in establishing peace.
April 23-30, activists around the world will come together for the Global Days for Darfur. We urge all those concerned to lend your voice to the United Nations in New York.
Sometimes it can feel like nothing we do makes a difference. But simple prayers and conversations between people who care should never be underestimated. In the global age, geographical distance does not vitiate moral responsibility. Our letters to congressional leaders, the UN, and the president, do make a difference. If we lift our voices together, our nation's leaders WILL do more for the people of Darfur.
