JRF urges our member communities to help make Global Days for Darfur a huge success: April 23rd to 30th
The Sudanese government-sponsored genocide in Darfur has already claimed up to 400,000 lives, displaced 2.5 million people and left more than 3.5 million men, women and children struggling to survive amid violence and starvation. The global community must act!
During the week of April 23th – 30th, 2007 – four years into the crisis in Darfur – groups and organizations throughout the world will come together for “Global Days for Darfur” to highlight the need for the immediate deployment of an international peacekeeping force. “Global Days for Darfur” presents an opportunity to place focused pressure on US policy makers, the United Nations, the Government of Sudan and the international community to call for the urgent protection of civilians in Darfur.
We need your help to inspire events around the country during this important week of action. We're hoping your group will join with countless others in organizing a local or regional event. To take the lead in organizing a “Global Days for Darfur” event in your area, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
