I choose peace because hundreds of thousands of people are at risk in the Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile where families face starvation because of continued attacks and a blockade of humanitarian aid. I choose peace in memory of the 2 million people who lost their lives during the war between Sudan and South Sudan with the hope that history won’t repeat itself. I choose peace because I stand with the people of Sudan and South Sudan.

If you are in or near Washington, D.C. on Sunday, July 8, join us at 4:00 p.m. at Lafayette Square. This will be one of many rallies taking place around the world. We will be joining together to demand that aid be allowed to reach those in desperate need and that attacks on civilians and the threat of a new war end once and for all. Join us!
