Yesterday, we had a big victory in Congress thanks to your efforts!!
The Darfur Accountability and Divestment Act (H.R.180) passed its first hurdle- being voted out of the House Financial Services Committee. This important piece of legislation will protect US states that divest, and will help cut off the flow of US money to companies who are supporting the genocide in Darfur.
The full House of Representatives will vote on this bill Monday, July 30 – and we need your help to make sure it passes!
Call 1-800-GENOCIDE (1-800-436-6243) today to ask your Representative to vote in favor of the Darfur Accountability and Divestment Act. You’ll be provided with all the information about the bill, given talking points, and directly connected to your Member of Congress.
Without this bill, states that divest from Sudan are left vulnerable – so your call is key.
Tell your Representative to take a stand against genocide by voting YES on this bill on Monday!
