We are writing to ask you to take a series of action to help influence the Obama Administration to choose the right course in its Sudan policy.

Take Immediate Action Today:

Text Secretary Clinton at 90822 with the simple message, “I stand with Sudan Now”

If you use Twitter, send this message to the Dept of State at the DoS official address “I stand with #SudanNow @dipnote”

Please forward this note to your friends and colleagues and ask them to join you.

Here’s the background:

Leading activists, concerned that the Obama administration is heading in the wrong direction in its Sudan policy, have joined together and launched Sudan Now, a campaign that challenges President Barack Obama and his top officials, including Vice President Joseph Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to live up to previous statements and campaign promises and to take strong and immediate action in Sudan.

Sudan Now is calling upon the U.S. to lead a more effective and urgent peace process for Darfur; build an international coalition for strict implementation of the North-South peace deal; and implement a policy that creates real consequences for those who continue to attack civilians, block life-saving aid, undermine peace and obstruct justice.

Members of the coalition include Humanity United, the Enough Project at the Center for American Progress, Stop Genocide Now and Investors Against Genocide. Read more at
