The letter, sent to Secretary of State John Kerry, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power and National Security Advisor Susan Rice, lays out new policy priorities and crucial initiatives to address the conflict and violence ravaging both countries. The coalition, which represents thousands of supporters across the United States, Sudan and South Sudan, also sent a memo to the U.S. Congress calling for greater focus on accountability, diplomacy, democracy promotion and humanitarian aid.
