Dear President-elect Obama--a message from

Dear President-Elect Obama

It’s official. The U.S. has decided who its next president will be.

The inauguration of a new president promises to provide new opportunities to bring protection and peace to the people of Darfur. Even better, these promises are supported by strong statements of commitment from President-elect Obama:

“I will make ending the genocide in Darfur a priority from Day One. It is a collective stain in our national and human conscience that the genocide in Sudan, now starting its sixth year, has gone on for far too long.” (April 2008)

“We can’t say ‘never again’ and then allow it to happen again. As President of the United States, I don’t intend to abandon the people or turn a blind eye to slaughter.” (April 2008)

President-elect Obama’s opportunity to turn his promises into action is coming soon. And our opportunity to hold him accountable has already begun.

Send a postcard urging President-elect Obama to make Darfur a day one priority. Together, our combined voices cannot be ignored. Together, we can help end a genocide.
