Action: Write to the media
Write to your local paper or media outlet about the upcoming Olympics, and how their motto, “One World, One Dream” is far away from the millions of Darfuri’s in grave danger everyday. Check out an example of a recent article by American Jewish World Service Rabbi Lee Bycel. Tell the stories of the Darfuri’s you have met. Use facts from Dream for Darfur and Eric Reeves about China and Sudan’s relationship. And finally, make it personal — your voice is their voice.
