Coalition for Darfur: Darfur: Stand In for Victims of the Slaughter

Make the commitment!
Sign the petition - and be sure to watch the short film - from Human Rights First
We're looking for at least 200,000 caring people to stand in for the victims of mass atrocities in Darfur. We need you to speak for those who have been killed, raped and displaced—the innocent people who can no longer speak for themselves.

The international community has not agreed on a number of those killed in the slaughter—estimates range from 180,000 to 400,000. The New York Times reported the number 200,000 in March 2006.

At least two million people have been forced to flee their homes—and are displaced in Sudan or in camps in
neighboring Chad.

Help us stand up for those who cannot speak for themselves. We are asking you to sign our petition to
call for a U.N. appointed diplomat of the highest international stature to lead a peace process in Darfur. Click here to read more about the case for an envoy

Will you be one of the 200,000 world citizens who says “enough is enough”? Will you help us gather names? When you sign up, you’ll represent a victim who has been killed, harmed or displaced so you can act as a voice for someone who cannot speak out.
Our words are not enought. Say them anyways. Our actions amount to naught. Act anyways. Our leaders ignore our cries. Cry aloud anyways. The murderers insert yet another banana clip into yet another aged and weary AK. Oppose them anyway. The heart of hell pours out in the nihilistic hearts of the Khartoum regime. Pour out our hearts in prayers anyways.

What little we can do, we must do. Take the time to add your name to the petition. Join your voice to those that answer our Lord's call to prophesy to the nations. Bear witness to the Gospel with your signature. Alone our voices count for little. But who said we were alone?
