Print postcards with drawings of Darfuri children (or use the originals here) and Darfur athlete profiles (pdf version) and send to your representative with a hand written note. Hand written letters are more likely to reach their desk. Ask them to ensure that Darfur receives the funding allocated by the US Congress and President Bush. Ask them to support the recent efforts of International Criminal Court Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo to prosecute President al-Bashir. Our leaders have a moral responsibility to protect innocent civilians that are not protected by their own governments.
