Lost at Sea: Rohingya Fleeing the Threat of Genocide
The Rohingya are fleeing the threat of genocide — and they are being cast back into the sea. Without immediate action, they are going to die.
Thousands of ethnic minority Rohingya from Burma are at sea trapped in crowded wooden boats. With food and clean water running low, their lives are in grave danger.
Instead of heading their cries for help and rescuing these people fleeing for their lives, Burma’s neighbors are pushing these rickety boats back to sea.
Act now. Ask the United States to help launch immediate search and rescue operations. As one of the most influential voices in the region the U.S. must also demand that Burma’s neighbors offer refugees emergency assistance and protect the Rohingya so they won’t have to flee.
Protect the People of Darfur
In the midst of the sharpest increase in violence in years, Sudan's President Bashir is bombing civilians, blocking investigations, and is demanding the removal of UN peacekeepers.
These actions are in clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions and must be met with bold measures by the United States, the UN Security Council and the international community.
Tell the U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, and the rest of the Security Council, it's time to act for the people of Darfur!
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.
South Sudan, A Country in Jeopardy
Time is running out for millions of people in South Sudan. There are dangerous warning signs of increased fighting and potential genocide.
Since fighting started in December 2013 between President Salva Kiir and his former vice president Riek Machar, an estimated 50,000 people have been killed, 1.9 million people have been forced from their homes and the threat of widespread famine looms.
Stop Ethnic Cleansing in Burma
An entire people are under attack not because of what they have done but because of who they are.
While Burma's government has sat by -- or even worse, participated in the fighting -- over 140,000 innocent civilians have been forced from their homes. Yet, the United States has continued to reward Burma by scaling back sanctions.
Contact President Obama now and demand that the United States take immediate action to stop the violence.
Driven into Darkness: Act now to stop the crisis in Syria
More than three-quarters of the lights in Syria have gone out. The darkness is a result of one of the worst crises of our time. More than 200,000 people have been killed and 11 million have been forced from their homes.
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.
