Iowans, state organizations insist that candidates make ending the genocide in Darfur a priority in 2008 election

12 Dec

WASHINGTON – In a full-page Des Moines Register advertisement, more than seven hundred Iowa caucus-goers pressed both Republican and Democratic presidential candidates to outline a clear policy to end the suffering in Darfur and to make the preventing future atrocities a priority in their campaigns. The advertisement, signed by hundreds of Iowans including Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, is the latest phase of a multi-faceted voter education campaign by Darfur advocates – including the Save Darfur Coalition, the Genocide Intervention Network, American Jewish World Service, the ENOUGH Project, and STAND: A Student Anti-Genocide Coalition – that includes on-the-ground advocacy, billboard advertisements and grassroots outreach.
