Sample Script: As a constituent who cares about ending atrocities in Sudan, I urge the Representative to sign-on to a letter to President Obama that is being circulated by the House Sudan Caucus. In light of ongoing violence, the letter urges the President to reinvigorate the U.S. policy on Sudan. Please contact Christina in Congressman Capuano’s office to sign-on. Thank you.

About the Letter

The letter underscores the need for a revised policy approach in saying, “…recent events in Southern Kordofan, Blue Nile, and Darfur provide clear evidence that the Administration’s policy toward Sudan must be reinvigorated to address the urgent humanitarian and civilian crises facing millions of Sudanese.” Additionally, the letter highlights the worsening humanitarian situation, describes the root cause of the problems in Sudan as the “marginalization of the peripheries by Khartoum”, and calls for the Administration to “marshal the international community” to end violence and support prospects for long-term peace.

    Is there a site where we can see which representatives have signed on to the letter?

      Hi Michael: The names of the representatives that have joined the letter thus far are not posted online. However, once the letter has been finalized and sent to the President, names will be available. I’d recommend reaching out to the office of your representative. If they have signed on, they should be able to tell you.
