On June 17, 2014 Act for Sudan and 77 other international human rights groups joined together to call for a fresh approach to U.S. policy on the war-torn countries of Sudan and South Sudan.

The wars in both Sudan and South Sudan are escalating and cross-border conflict connections between the two are deepening. Sudan is experiencing unprecedented levels of violence: deadly fighting in Darfur now rivals the intensity that triggered global outrage in 2003-2005 and a relentless campaign of aerial bombardment and military attacks in the Two Areas is in its third year.

Ask Secretary of State John Kerry, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power, and National Security Advisor Susan Rice to push the U.S. Government to do what it takes to end genocide and crimes against humanity in Sudan and end the conflict in South Sudan.
