It’s Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for and you are at the top of our list.

Thanks to your actions and the overwhelming support, you’ve taken a stand for millions of people suffering the threat of genocide.

And you’ve made a HUGE difference. Here are some of the accomplishments you can be proud of this Thanksgiving:

We exposed genocides unfolding across the world. Photos from our fact finding trips to camps in Burma were displayed on the floor of Congress. We helped reporters like Nicholas Kristof from the New York Times tell the stories of what is really going on in Burma. We raised our voices and spread the word about those at risk in South Sudan, Darfur and the Central African Republic.

We connected and mobilized voices. We brought members of the South Sudanese Diaspora to speak with U.S. officials involved with peace negotiations. We organized groups in Burma working to combat hate speech. And we spoke to thousands of students and activists at local events.

We demanded action. And won. With thousands of voices by our side, we put South Sudan on the agenda of the U.S. Africa Leaders Summit and at the UN. We passed legislation in both the House and Senate providing aid for those in dire need in Syria. And we succeeded in getting President Obama to take a stand for the Rohingya in Burma.

These wins are only possible because of you and the hundreds of thousands of amazing United to End Genocide supporters. Thank you!

The work we do is hard, battling the world’s worst dictators and criminals. Knowing you have our back — and those under attack — gives us the strength and courage to keep meeting these challenges.

From all of us at United to End Genocide, thank you for your caring, compassion and unrelenting pursuit of justice.

Happy Thanksgiving,

P.S. Is the thankfulness mutual? If so, we’ve created five Facebook Cover images for you to use to show your support of United to End Genocide.
