Take the i-ACTivist Challenge

WANTED:  i-ACTivists

Darfur needs you. Darfuris in need of food, water, medicine, shelter, and protection need you to re-energize. Yes we have been working to bring peace to Darfur for too long. But we have not done enough. Now more than ever, they need us to bring LOUD, VISIBLE, and CONSISTENT pressure to our leaders – all of them: local, state, and national.

Less than three weeks ago, the International Criminal Court indicted Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bahsir on War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. Upon hearing this, al-Bashir took the actions he claimed he would in the months leading up to the arrest warrant: 16 aid organizations expelled leaving 4.7 million refugees without aid and janjaweed and Sudanese soldiers armed and prepared to act on any orders from Khartoum. Once again the innocent civilians will suffer the most. It is the time for i-ACTivists, around the world, to take collective action for each individual suffering on the ground.

HumanityJoin us by participating in the i-ACTivist Challenge. In the daily action of each i-ACT day one word will be BOLD. That word will only remain bold on that day. Write it down somewhere safe, and send your list of 10 words and the ACTION that you took that day at the end of the trip to challenge@stopgenocidenow.org — if you get them all correct, we will send you an profile of a Darfur refugee and a Humanity before Politics t-shirt!
