Hey, this is Mo!
So, over in Sudan in a lil' place called Darfur there's a lot of bad shit going on (as you probably know). And it feels really hard to make much of a difference from waayyy over here.
But here are a few, super easy, fast ways you can make a difference!
1. Educate yourself on Darfur and have conversations about the genocide with people around you! For info on Darfur check out:
Darfur, Never Again (Again) Short, kinda gimmicky cartoon that shows the basics of what's up
Even Wikipedia! (but shit, what isn't on Wikipedia?)
2. Call 1-800-Genocide every day. Go to http://www.1800genocide.com/ for information on what to say. Basically, it's calling the local gov and beyond to show that people in the USA give a shit about what's going on, call every day if you can! The more support the louder the message! Encourage friends to call too!
3. Learn Divestment! Learn what companies to avoid that send money to support this genocide. http://www.sudandivestment.org/docs/Tutorial_PowerPoint.pdf Has an easy powerpoint that explains divestment.
4. Sign the BeAWitness.org petition, it sends a letter out to all the head hauncho news guys (CNN, NBC, Fox, etc) saying that you want to see Darfur in the news more than celebrity gossip.
5. Boycott the Olympics in Beijing! China has a lot of power to help end this genocide, and instead they're financially helping out. Total bullshit.
