Use your voice

Next Tuesday President Bush will set out his top priorities for the year when he delivers his annual State of the Union address to Congress.
We need your help to make sure the President emphasizes the urgency of ending the crisis in Darfur in his speech.
Please click here to ask President Bush to highlight his plan for Darfur when he addresses the nation on Tuesday.
Tuesday's State of the Union address provides an opportunity to ensure that ending the genocide in Darfur is a central part of the President's agenda and a top priority for the new Congress.
But there is another, even more critical reason why we need your help to reach out to President Bush today.
Right now, infamous Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir is making a bid to become the next president of the African Union (AU) -- the very same international organization of African nations whose peacekeepers are trying to stem the violence in Darfur.
President Bashir's own policies have already led to the death and displacement of millions of Darfuris. We must do everything we can to stop President Bashir from become President of the African Union or more innocent Darfuris will pay the price.
Please join us in contacting President Bush right now to urge him to make Darfur a priority in his speech and to do everything in his power to prevent President Bashir from taking control of the African Union.

Once you've sent your letter to the President, help us spread the word about this urgent effort by forwarding this message to your friends and family.
Thank you again for your support.
Best regards,
David RubensteinSave Darfur Coalition
