Tell Congress to Fund Darfur Peacekeeping Once and For All!
The United States has urged the international community to take action to end the ongoing genocide in Darfur. The United Nations has taken up the challenge and is aiming to deploy the most complex and logistically difficult peacekeeping mission ever. The UN is working hard to get the resources it needs for this mission and to put peacekeepers on the ground in Darfur, but Congress has yet to approve full funding for the United States' share of the peacekeeping!
Join with thousands of people across the country to take part in Darfur National Action Week. Tell Congress it is imperative that they provide the $724 million in emergency funding for the UN-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur, as requested by President Bush.
Lead your leaders! Call 1-800-GENOCIDE and talk to your representative -- urge him or her to make funding for Darfur peacekeeping a priority!
