Help the Rohingya Fleeing Threats of Genocide
Fleeing the threat of genocide in Burma, over 100,000 ethnic minority Rohingya have taken a perilous journey to leave the country by sea.
The Rohingya are fleeing horrific Apartheid-like conditions where 140,000 are confined in what many describe as "concentration camps" and what the U.S. Holocaust Museum has described as "early warning signs of genocide".
With an enormous amount of influence in Burma, the U.S. has a moral obligation to confront the source of this hell – Burma’s systematic repression and endangerment of 1.3 million Rohingya people living there.
Unless the policies of hate end in Burma, the crisis will only escalate. Help the Rohingya fleeing threats of genocide. Ask President Obama to demand that Burma stop its attacks on the Rohingya.
100 Years of Denial: Recognize the Armenian Genocide
When Hitler was asked how he thought he would be able to exterminate all of Europe’s Jews, he infamously replied, "Who today remembers the Armenians?"
One hundred years after the start of the Armenian Genocide, the question still remains.
Despite the evidence of the Armenian Genocide, many countries — including Turkey — still deny that a genocide took place.
Before entering the White House, President Obama said America "deserves a leader who speaks truthfully about the Armenian Genocide." We agree.
Join the call to President Obama to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide and demand that Turkey formally recognize what happened.
Driven into Darkness: Act now to stop the crisis in Syria

The bottom line in Syria should be a political solution. But immediate action is needed to stop attacks on civilians and address the massive humanitarian crisis.
