JUSTICE DOESN'T JUST HAPPEN ~ GENOCIDE ENDS WHEN ENOUGH OF US STAND UP AGAINST IT


From the www.enoughproject.org website:

The People Speak

Congo woman with child

We are pleased to announce that we have just delivered a petition to President Barack Obama – signed by more than 39,000 concerned Americans – asking him to take action on Congo. This is the largest ever call to action in the United States on Congo and underscores the growing strength of the Congo activist movement. You can read the press release here. This tremendous effort would not be possible without our friends and allies, including Oxfam America, Amnesty International, Bureau pour le Volontariat au Service de l’Enfance et de la Santé (BVES), Campus Progress at the Center for American Progress, Congo Global Action, CONGO/Women, Genocide Intervention Network, HEAL Africa, Human Rights Watch, Family Violence Prevention Fund, PAIF (Promotion et appui aux initiatives feminines), STAND, Synergie des Femmes pour les Victimes de Violences Sexuelles, The United Methodist Church General Board of Church and Society, V-Day, and Women Thrive Worldwide.

The thousands and thousands of individuals who signed their name to the petition are testament to the fact that the movement to end to the world’s deadliest war is growing in strength and numbers. Learn more and visit our RAISE Hope for Congo website.


Darfur from Day One

Today marks Day Three of Barack Obama’s presidency. Enough is partnering with the Save Darfur Coalition, Genocide Intervention Network, and STAND for a new campaign to ensure that President Obama makes Darfur a top priority in his first days and weeks of office. In the midst of a financial crisis and wars on multiple fronts, it is more important than ever that we, as activists, make our voices heard on this issue – keeping the new administration’s feet to the fire to bring peace to Sudan, by immediately appointing a special envoy and launching a “peace surge.” A new day has undoubtedly dawned in Washington. Let’s work to make sure Sudan sees a new day as well. Check out more information on the campaign and a short video from STAND student activists below:
