Darfur Accountability Act
I am writing to request your strong support of the Darfur Accountability Act (S.495, H.R.1424). The actions mandated by this bill will stabilize the situation in the Darfur region of Sudan and in neighboring areas by reducing the number of deaths. It is critical that the United States act now, directly, and in support of the African Union, to stop the genocide. Over 400,000 people have already lost their lives in this senseless tragedy. Millions of others have been displaced.
Georgia is home to many Sudanese refugees, commonly called "Lost Boys of Sudan." I have had several opportunities to talk with these men and women and those conversations have deepened my concern about the conflict in Sudan. Such instability is detrimental not only to the people of Sudan but to the world at large. As citizens of the world, we owe it to ourselves, and the people of Sudan, to stop this genocide.
Please support the Darfur Accountability Act and help make this possible.
Thank you very much.
