An Evening for Darfur
Armenians, Jews, Cambodians, Kurds, Bosnians, Tutsis…and now Darfuris. As
usual, our political elites are failing to confront a known genocide. But we
don’t have to fail along with them, thanks to an enterprising group of
Swarthmore students whose “dorm-room foreign policy” can become your own if
Join me and the organizers of the Genocide Intervention Fund (GIF) for a
backyard dinner-party, teach-in, and film screening to raise money to save
lives in Darfur
Sunday, July 24
5 to 9 p.m.
Cara O’Connor’s Backyard
181 Freeman Street, Brooklyn
My goal is to raise $1,200, so I’m asking each of you to bring $25 cash or
your checkbook. Money raised through GIF goes to the African Union, whose
underfunded peacekeepers are the only ones on the ground stopping
state-supported Janjaweed violence. To learn more about GIF and the Darfur
crisis, please visit: http://www.GenocideInterventionFund.org
