Help Stop the Genocide in Darfur

Dear Friends,

I've asked before; I'm pleading now. Today please make the time to call your two Senators and your Congressional representative, expressing your desire for the American government to help stop the genocide in Darfur. To read more about this human slaughter and how you personally can help stop it, go to www.savedarfur.org.

All you have to do is make one call. To find out the contact info for your Senators and Congressman, go to www.congress.org , or you can call the U.S. capital switchboard at (877) 762-8762 or (202) 224-3121. To make your case stronger when speaking to your Congresspeople or their aids, you might want to make these points:

The U.S. should help build the African Union Security Force (Congress recently cut out the $50 million dollars from the federal budget that would have been used for this purpose).

There needs to be an expanded U.N. security force in Darfur

The U.S. should support a no-fly zone to protect civilians

The Darfur Peace and Accountability Act should be passed in the House of Representatives

We want President Bush to talk about this issue whenever and however possible, to awaken the American people to the horror of this situation and to our moral responsibility to address it.

It has been said that if one hundred people in each Congressional district in the U.S. had contacted their representatives about the Rwandan genocide, then that would have generated the political will to stop it. The Rwandan horror is being repeated today in the Sudan, and the U.S. is not yet doing everything we can to help. Not even close.

Dante's famous quote resonates: "There is a special place in hell reserved for those who, in times of moral crisis, remain neutral." Genociate in the Sudan is a moral crisis of the first degree. And we can stop it. Amen.

Please help spread the word....

Thanks. All my best,

Marianne Williamson
