Can you set aside one minute of your day tomorrow to commit to making the call for a new special envoy to Sudan?
In the next few days, the International Criminal Court is expected to issue an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.
The ICC warrant represents an important step toward ending impunity for crimes against civilians in Darfur, but it also has the potential to put Darfuri civilians in even more immediate danger. For months, President Bashir has been threatening further violence and blockage of humanitarian assistance if and when the indictment is announced. The Obama administration cannot allow this to happen, and neither can we.
What can you do about it?
Sign up right now to commit to calling Secretary Clinton and demand that she appoint a special envoy to Sudan immediately. You will be responsible for calling 1-800-GENOCIDE (1-800-436-624) to tell Clinton to act now and appoint an envoy.
To keep Clinton’s phones ringing on Friday, a call needs to be made every single minute of the day. To make that happen we need you to sign up for a minute now. Get the word out and make sure that the State Department’s phones do not stop ringing from 9 in the morning to 5 in the evening on Friday, February 13th.
