Stop the Genocide in Darfur
Demand Bold Action from President BushSince 2003, as many as 400,000 Black Africans have been killed and over 2 million have been driven from their homes. It's genocide, plain and simple, but no one is doing what's necessary to stop it.
We can change that.
Speaking on the genocide in Rwanda, the late Senator Paul Simon said, "If every member of the House and Senate had received 100 letters from people back home saying we have to do something about Rwanda, when the crisis was first developing, then I think the response would have been different."
On Sunday April 30th, tens of thousands of people will gather in Washington to demand that President Bush take the steps necessary to end the genocide and build a lasting peace. To coincide with that effort, we're hoping to get at least 100 people from each congressional district to send a letter to President Bush, urging him to push for a UN Security Council resolution which would create a peacekeeping force with the power to stop the violence. We'll send the letter to each person's representative in the House and senators, letting them know we expect them to keep the heat on Bush.
