Below is a letter I received from one of my friends. I hope that some of you reading this will have a chance to attend.
Darfur: ‘all of our nightmares have become realities’
A top U.N. official announced on Monday that unless the international community takes immediate steps to stop the violence, the Darfur region is within weeks of “a man-made catastrophe of an unprecedented scale."
For an on-the-ground perspective on the crisis unfolding in Darfur and eastern Chad, join us next Tuesday, September 5, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EDT for an online discussion with Theo Murphy, an Amnesty International researcher who recently returned from eastern Chad. Learn how you can help ensure protection for those who've been displaced by violence in the conflict and how you can get involved with activities surrounding the global Day for Darfur on September 17th.
We look forward to your participation in next week's discussion.
