Interested in making movies? Interested in getting on TV? Interested in influencing elections? Interested in helping to stop the genocide in Darfur? Here’s your chance to do all four!

YouTube is sponsoring Democratic and Republican Presidential candidate debates where the questions come from YOU. Create an original and compelling video voicing your question about Darfur, submit it to YouTube, and the presidential candidates might have to answer it on national television! This is your opportunity to demand that each candidate takes a stance on the genocide in Darfur.

Get started now! Visit the YouTube/CNN Debate site. Be sure to make your question specific, personal and engaging. We have provided a few question topics below to help get you started.

After you have submitted your video, let us know! Email us at with the name and link for your video and it might be featured on STAND’s website! Then visit 24 Hours for Darfur and find out how your videos can actually stop the genocide!

Also, be sure to check out the latest Genocide Education survey from the Genocide Intervention Network now featured on the STAND website! The few minutes it will take to complete the survey will help the Genocide Intervention Network work on a new initiative to mandate genocide education in public schools across the United States! We appreciate your time.

Good luck!

    This is a great initiative, but they aren’t getting much press and it’s pretty close to the deadline. We can help by DIGGing their awesome YouTube video.
