George Clooney, actor and long-time advocate of human rights in Sudan, is expected to testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this week. The hearing, Sudan and South Sudan: Independence and Insecurity, will be held on Wednesday at 10 a.m.

Clooney will also be in Washington, D.C. to support the March 16th Day of Action for Sudan.

The actor is co-founder of the Satellite Sentinel Project and recently returned from a trip to the region with Enough co-founder John Prendergast. Half a million men, women and children are now at risk of starvation in Sudan’s Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile because the government of Sudan is blockading food and humanitarian aid.
