Rally for Darfur: Day of Conscience

We must continue to do all we can to protect Darfur's victims. That effort begins with raising awareness right here at home and showing our elected leaders this is an issue of grave concern.

That is why the Save Darfur Coalition and its partners will hold a "Rally to Stop Genocide" in Washington, D.C. on April 30, 2006. For those of you on the West Coast, there will also be a rally in San Francisco.

The Rally to Stop Genocide will feature leading voices in the effort to stop the genocide in Darfur, including a broad spectrum of prominent faith leaders, political figures, human rights activists, and celebrities. We have also invited survivors of the Holocaust and genocides in Cambodia, Kosovo, Srebrenica, Rwanda, South Sudan and Darfur.

Take action, get involved.
