NEW VIDEO: We must act for Darfur now

Starvation and disease threaten millions in Darfur.

What we do RIGHT NOW will determine their fate.

There isn't a moment to lose! Watch and donate today.

Dear friend,

We've entered a new phase of destruction in Darfur. Millions of people in refugee camps depend on food and medicine from aid groups the government of Sudan recently expelled from the county. Thousands could die.

It's going to take relentless pressure in the next few weeks to ensure world leaders act to restore aid to Darfur—and bring a lasting peace to Sudan.

We wanted to share a video that we put together to express the dire urgency of this moment—and we've set a goal of raising $150,000 by March 31 to fund our work. Can you help us meet it?

Watch this video and rush your urgent $50 gift to us today. What we do right now will determine the fate of innocents in Darfur.

The International Criminal Court's recent decision to issue an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has sent out a ripple of hope. And last week, President Obama appointed General J. Scott Gration as his special envoy to Sudan. But these positive steps forward are just the beginning.

President Obama must lead the effort to protect Darfuri civilians by spearheading an urgent and sustained diplomatic push to establish humanitarian access in Darfur and lasting peace for all Sudan.

What will compel him to act? The same thing that has gotten us this far—a constituency of conscience, a grassroots movement of towering strength and unyielding passion for justice.

We will work around the world and around the clock to end the genocide—pressuring governments, organizing community activists, introducing Darfuris and their stories to the media and key policymakers. But we can't do it without your support.

We don't have a moment to lose—watch the video and donate $50 now.

Thank you so much for everything you've done. I know we can count on you now, when the people of Darfur need us most.

With new hope for peace in Darfur comes renewed danger for the Darfuri people.

In coming weeks, we will relentlessly pressure President Obama and other world leaders to take bold action to isolate Bashir and end the crisis in Sudan. But we can't do it alone.

We've committed to raising $150,000 by March 31 to ensure this moment doesn't slip away. Please help by filling out the fields below and making your gift today.
