Give Peace a Chance

Monday, January 23, 2006 by Sam Davidson

A new campaign was launched last Thursday, dealing with the continued genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Coinciding with the 55th anniversary of International Genocide Prevention Day, the “Million Voices for Darfur” campaign hopes to raise awareness among faith, community and students groups.

One of the strongest points of the campaign focuses on heightening media coverage of the humanitarian crisis. While the genocide has been going on since 2003, the issue has still not received the attention worthy of the monumental atrocity that it is. Since then, senate confirmation hearings, pregnant celebrities and bird flu have all received substantially more airtime than the deaths of 400,000 people and the displacement of over 2 million more. It is hoped that this campaign will not just fill the gap in coverage of the Darfur situation, but challenge major news outlets to educate the public on the aid that is needed in Sudan.

To participate in this monumental campaign, go here and get involved.


In hopes of raising awareness about the reality of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan, Sam Davidson writes every Monday about a key issue in an attempt to stop the atrocity. Doing so may not bring about a wave of change, but it is a small ripple that represents the tide that needs turning. He is the co-founder and President of CoolPeopleCare.
