The Darfur Interfaith Network is made up of people from different faiths, backgrounds, races, and ages who have been meeting for the past five years in the Washington, D.C., area. We have held monthly vigils at the Embassy of Sudan and have been involved in many Sudan advocacy events over the years. The organization is full of wonderful, compassionate people who care deeply for the people of Sudan and are driven by the suffering of innocent men, women, and children and by the belief that we are all God’s children and are called to speak up for our brothers and sisters who do not have a voice.
As members of the Darfur Interfaith Network, we are excited to tell you about the Hope for Darfur – Justice in Sudan march and rally scheduled for Sunday, May 23 at 1:30 PM. We invite all in the area to join us for this peaceful march, and we encourage you to bring your families and banners from your congregations and organizations to show support for the people of Sudan.
The inexplicable indifference we sometimes encounter in our own community to the ongoing conflict in Darfur and challenges to peace in Sudan as a whole strengthens our resolve and determination to work harder to reach out to others who care as deeply as we do. Our hope is that compassionate people of faith, concerned citizens, and humanitarian aid groups from across the area will unite with us as we stand with other activists, survivors of the genocide and most recent North-South civil war, and clergy of all faiths as we march to demand peace and justice in Sudan.
Many members of Darfur Interfaith Network have special ties to other countries in Africa, including Rwanda, Congo, and Somalia. Although the focus of our march and advocacy efforts have been on the inhumanity in Darfur and Sudan, we pray, discuss, and hope for a better future for all people who suffer.
To learn more about the march and rally, how you can volunteer, how you can donate to humanitarian aid and advocacy efforts, and what you can do NOW to help the innocent people of Sudan, please see our website at www.hope4darfurmarch.org
We hope to see you Sunday, May 23 at the Hope for Darfur – Justice in Sudan march and rally!
