April is Genocide Prevention Month, and this year it is a critical time for Darfur. An arrest warrant has been issued for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir. Darfuris have been displaced by genocidal violence for six years. The expulsion of 13 humanitarian aid groups from Sudan has left millions of Darfuri civilians at immediate risk of starvation and disease. And, President Obama has been in office for nearly 100 days.
We must show our leaders that thousands of Americans demand action at this high-stakes moment — and they won't be able to ignore thousands of Americans rallying in communities across America.
Throughout April, we are raising our collective voice with hundreds of grassroots events nationwide, and we're demanding that Obama act to ensure peace for Sudan, protection for its people and accountability for the architects of genocide. Become part of this momentous campaign by hosting an event in your community. Can't host? Search for an event in your area, and be sure to read about our event in Lafayette Square.
