In California, over 150 people stopped to write letters to their Congressional Representative in support of saving Darfur. The result?
“When they write the history of the genocide in Darfur what will they say about what we did or perhaps more importantly, what we didn’t do to stop the violence.” Schiff [D-29th District] asked. “There are estimates that 300,000 persons have been murdered, countless tens of thousands raped and this is an absolute atrocious situation that is ongoing as we speak.”
It’s true, letter writing can make a difference. The key is getting as many people (per district) involved as possible.
