Global Days for Darfur

Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.



Activists across the world have come together to plan "Global Days for Darfur" - a week of rallies, marches, vigils and other events designed to alert the world that "time has run out" for the people of Darfur.

Will you please join us and thousands of Darfur activists around the globe the week of April 23rd - 30th? Click here to find an event taking place near you.

At the web page, locate the "Find an Event" section on the right-hand side of the page, enter your zip code and the numbers of miles you'd like to search within, then click "Find Events" to see what will be taking place in your area.

If you find that there are not yet any events taking place in your town or city, we encourage you to host your own event for others in your community to join.

Click here to organize your own Global Days for Darfur event in your town or city. You can get started by locating the "Create an Event" section on the right-hand side of the page (right above "Find an Event"), entering your zip code, and clicking "create event."

If you are willing to organize an event, we encourage you to register your event by Sunday, March 25th to give us enough time to promote them to the rest of the community.

As you know all too well, time has run out for the people of Darfur.

We must call attention to the escalating violence and the continued failure of the international community to adequately respond to this crisis. The Global Days for Darfur week of action and events offers a perfect forum to help raise awareness of the crisis and to call for the immediate deployment of an international peacekeeping force to Darfur.

Please support your fellow activists in speaking out for the people of Darfur by joining an event in your area. Or, if there are currently no activities planned in your community, we hope you will consider creating your own event during this important week.

Once again, thank you for your incredible commitment to stopping the violence in Darfur.

Best regards,

Ben Prochazka

Click here to visit the Save Darfur Coalition's online store to browse our merchandise, including a new selection of t-shirts and sweatshirts featuring our new logo. The logo is an acacia tree, which often serves as the only shelter for Darfuri refugees whose villages have been destroyed, and is therefore a powerful symbol of hope that our work together will result in lasting protection for the people of Darfur.
