Good morning! Lauren Clyne Medley, Enough Project's Online Engagement Manager, is live-blogging from the National Day of Action for Sudan in Washington, DC.
We're joining partners at United to End Genocide for a protest against the Sudanese government's actions. We're calling on the United States and world leaders to stop the violence and prevent hundreds of thousands of people from starving.
The protest is today from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m., at Sheridan Square, in front of the Sudanese Embassy.
You can follow this blog post for reports from the protest in Washington, DC, or follow us on twitter, @enoughproject.
Watch our video from the protest:
