Tell President Obama: End Genocide Now


Tragically, genocide didn't end with the Holocaust.

Just over 60 years ago this month, with the horrors of the Holocaust fresh in mind, the world adopted the U.N. Genocide Convention, and promised to prevent and punish the crime of genocide.

But we haven't followed through on that promise: think of Rwanda, Bosnia, and now Darfur.

Now, as we recognize the anniversary of the genocide convention this month, it's up to us to see the struggle through - and end genocide forever.

Join us by asking President Obama to make genocide prevention a priority >

Early in his presidency, President Obama told the world that we "find cause for hope in a movement to save Darfur that has... people of every age and faith and background and race united in common cause with suffering brothers and sisters halfway around the world."

But today, the crisis in Darfur continues, and the U.S. and the world have still failed to act on the policies recommended by the Genocide Prevention Task Force.

We can't stand by while the threat of genocide looms. Instead, we must make sure genocide prevention is one of President Obama's priorities.

Ask President Obama to live up to his words by making genocide prevention a priority today >

Thanks for lending your voice,

- The Team in partnership with Save Darfur
