Advocating for Darfur

Got this email from Enough:

Dear Darfur Advocate,

We've been working for months to get Congress to pass crucial legislation that will protect state and local governments' rights to divest from companies that help fund genocide in Darfur.

Thanks to you and hundreds of thousands of Darfur activists around the country, the Senate unanimously approved the Sudan Accountability and Divestment Act last week, and Tuesday, the House of Representatives followed suit.

Now President Bush has 10 days to sign SADA into law. Call the White House today and urge President Bush to sign the bill into law.

In his first year in office, in the margins of a memo on the Rwandan genocide, President Bush wrote, "Not on my watch." Make sure he remembers his promise by protecting states' and local governments' rights to divest, and making sure our tax dollars don't go to contracts with companies that help fund genocide.

Just follow the steps below:


Call the White House Comment Line at 202-456-1111.
Tell the staff person who answers the phone that you are urging the President to sign the Sudan Accountability and Divestment Act and take all steps necessary to implement it.
Report your call at www.1800genocide.org (bottom half of the page).
Call President Bush today to make sure he protects the right of states and local governments to divest for Darfur and stops our tax dollars from going to contracts with companies that help fund genocide!

Your support is critical to make sure that American dollars do not enable the genocidal regime in Khartoum.

Thank you for your continued support for the people of Darfur.

Best regards,

Cory Smith
