Educate Others

Teaching others about Darfur is an important step in raising awareness and getting more people involved in the campaign to end the genocide. Part of teaching others includes giving them a way to take action.  Send them to this page to sign the postcard to President Bush, or to learn more with the educational materials links provided on this page.

We also offer many resources and samples to help educate others. Photos and videos are a great way to visualize the situation on the ground. Sample petitions and letters to Congress give ideas for additional ways to take action.

Look at the entire list of Resources and Samples.

Every time you educate others about Darfur, remind them that there are simple ways to take action. The Million Voices for Darfur campaign helps individuals contact President Bush and demand that he do more to protect the civilians of Darfur. You can order postcards or participate electronically at

Involve your religious community. The Faith Action Packet contains a variety of suggestions for ways to work with your faith community on a local level. Ask your religious leaders to focus on spreading awareness through sermons and Darfur-related prayers. Approach members of your congregation and coordinate awareness and advocacy activities, especially postcard signings at coffee-hours or religious classes.

Work with your school. Students and teachers can learn more about how to integrate Darfur into their education on the student activism page. Students in high school and college should connect with STAND (Students Taking Action Now: Darfur).

Wear a green wristband   Hand them out with a flyer explaining why it's important to draw attention to the situation in Darfur. Ask a teacher, an administrator, a public official or a local celebrity to wear a green wristband.

Discuss Darfur.  Make Darfur a topic on the agenda at non-Darfur community meetings. Propose ways the group can become more involved in helping to end the violence and suffering in Darfur.

Post flyers around your community.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about Darfur and the plight of its people, and for any action you are able to take, even if it is just a prayer for its people.

Seventeen hours later, after an all-night negotiating session, much wavering and learning his younger brother had been killed in Darfur, Minnawi finally succumbed to the pressure exerted by Zoellick, Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo and other international officials. He signed the peace agreement, which President Bush hailed yesterday as "the beginnings of hope for the people of Darfur." 

SS: A bright glimmer of hope after many dark days, this is only a beginning to the efforts and it will take up to a year to implement the current peace agreement details, such as troop deployment from the UN.  So this is very positive but much will still need to occur and that is why awareness continues to be imperative.  These agreements tend to be very fragile as well, hence the need for continued prayers and efforts on behalf of the people of Darfur.
