Sign the Petition to Protect - and help millions in Darfur

Sign the Petition to Protect - and help millions in Darfur
We need your support — your signature — to show the world that we as global citizens will not stand idly by while millions of people in Darfur are being terrorized, driven from their homes and, in many cases, killed.

Over 2 million people have been displaced and more than 200,000 have been killed while the world watches. This needs to end. We must reverse the tide of violence in Darfur, so that women, children and families can lead the safe and happy lives they deserve.

Please sign our "Petition to Protect" and encourage your friends to do the same.

Send this petition to:
Representative Frank Wolf

I am writing to express my concern for the worsening conflict in the Darfur region of Sudan. This conflict has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives and forced millions of men, women and children to leave their villages and homes. These people are doing everything they can to survive, and they deserve our help.

Continued, positive diplomatic engagement by the United States, along with the larger international community, is needed to resolve the crisis in Darfur. Until progress is made, the United States must continue to provide vital resources for humanitarian assistance that is saving lives. This support is especially critical now given the continuing decline in the security environment. You are a necessary part of that support. I ask that you give your time, assistance, and vote to the people of Darfur.

Thank you very much for your time and attention to the families in the midst of this urgent crisis.
