Applaud unity on Darfur

Dear Shannah,

Outrage at genocide. A commitment to peace and security for the people of Darfur.

It’s not a blue-state, red-state thing. It’s a human rights thing.

Watch the presidential candidates’ video about Darfur and thank them for their statement of unity.


Not since World War II have all major presidential candidates come together on an international issue. 

Until now.  Today, Senators Clinton, McCain and Obama released a joint statement condemning the violence against the people of Darfur and promising to address the issue with “unstinting resolve.”

Let’s show our appreciation.  Click here to watch a video with the three candidates and send a note applauding their unity on this matter of grave national concern.
 
The three candidates have honest differences about many issues.  But this joint statement shows us they are willing to put aside those differences to stand in solidarity against genocide. They are united in the belief that “atrocities against civilians in Darfur” are “unacceptable to the American people and to the world community.”

The Senators go on to say that:

 

 

 

If peace and security for the people of Sudan are not in place when one of us is inaugurated as President on January 20, 2009, we pledge that the next Administration will pursue these goals with unstinting resolve.

At the Save Darfur Coalition, we encourage policymakers to make the right decisions.  We show them our disappointment when they make bad choices, but also our gratitude when they make good ones. 

Click here to thank the presidential candidates, for putting aside politics to stand up for what’s right in Darfur.

After you have sent your message, please click here to ask your friends, family, and co-workers to join you in send a message to the candidates.

We have consensus; what we need is action.  In less than eight months, one of these candidates will assume one of the most powerful positions in the world.  Whoever it is, we must stand together to make sure the next president fulfils our responsibility to the people of Darfur. 

Best regards,

Colleen Connors
