President Barack Obama
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear President Obama,

I applaud your work to address many pressing foreign policy issues in
your first week of office, particularly your appointment of
Presidential Special Envoys to the Middle East and Asia. A similar
action in another region of the world is urgently needed: increasing
violence against innocent civilians in Darfur, Sudan necessitates the
immediate appointment of a Special Envoy for Sudan.

The recent violence illustrates the need for multilateral efforts to
achieve peace in the region. As our President we look to you to
reinvigorate U.S. policy toward a peaceful Sudan. A major step to that
peace is the appointment of a U.S. Special Envoy to Sudan. I ask that
you promptly name a full-time envoy to the region who can work to end
the six years of violence in Darfur and will engage in high-level
diplomacy with the Governments of Sudan and South Sudan to ensure that
the Comprehensive Peace Agreement is fully implemented.

The people of Sudan need the support of your new administration to end
violence and support peace which will foster long term development in a
country full of potential. I thank you for your attention to this
important issue.


Mr. Clint Schnekloth
