National Day of Action for Darfur

Host an event September 21st, and join communities all across the country in a National Day of Action for Darfur.

You can take action by meeting with your elected representatives, organizing a prayer vigil or hosting a video screening. At each event, we would like participants to write to President Bush. We will provide postcards upon request.

In concert with your event and those occurring across the nation, leaders of major organizations will convene in Washington for a National Leadership Assembly for Darfur. These leaders will meet with government officials to reinforce the American public’s demands that the United States take decisive and effective action to protect the people of Darfur.

Please plan your event now. Then, register your event so people in your area can participate. For more information and to register, visit the National Day of Action page on the Save Darfur website.


You can apply for a mini-grant to help underwrite the cost of your event. Each award will provide up to $200 and will include postcards.
