Since coming back from the camps, I have not really been writing too much here. I’m going to change that, since I think it’s a great way to stay connected and let you know about the situation back in the camps and Darfur and about ways that you can become involved and be a par to the solution.
Here in the US, efforts for Darfur are starting to heat up in a good way. There are many groups doing work to bring attention to the crisis and create pressure to change it. April 2006 will be a national month of awareness and action. I will soon let you know of the different campaigns, including the Million Voices for Darfur, in which we will collect one million signed postcards to be delivered to the White House on April 30th.
In Los Angeles, April 7 will mark the opening of Camp Darfur, a mock refugee camp that will serve to create awareness, educate, and create action to stop the genocide in Darfur. More info to come soon!
Please stay in touch.
