Take 2 minutes to help stop the genocide in Darfur, Sudan!!!!!
In February, the U.S. will become the President of the UN Security Council for one month, creating the perfect opportunity to push the international community to intervene to stop the genocide in Darfur. Please take a moment on January 18th to call the White House (the comment line is 202-456-1111 and the switchboard line is 202-456-1414) and State Department (202) 647-4000 to urge the introduction of a resolution that would give the African Union mission in Sudan a stronger mandate and provide for UN peacekeeping forces to be deployed to Darfur. They won't take action unless they know they have US citizen's support! You may choose to use the following phone script.
Hello. My name is __________ from ____________ calling in regards to the genocide in Darfur. I commend the administration's declaration that the crisis in Darfur, Sudan is indeed genocide and am calling because genocide is such a severe crime that it can not be allowed to continue. Due to the deteriorating situation in Darfur the international community needs to strengthen their efforts to stop the violence. When the U.S. becomes president of the UN Security Council in February, it should introduce a resolution to strengthen the mandate of the African Union Mission in Sudan. The U.S. should also use its role as a leader of the Security Council to propose sending a UN peacekeeping mission to Darfur to support the AU Mission in Sudan. Thank you very much for your time.
