The National Security Council Deputies Committee met in January to review progress of the Obama Administration's Sudan policy. Since the meeting, the administration remains split on its approach to Sudan policy. Violence on the ground in Darfur continues and no one has been held accountable for the many war crimes that have occurred.
Sign our petition to the deputies urging them to escalate real pressures on the parties, call for a strengthened civilian protection mandate, and deploy more full-time diplomats on the ground in Sudan to accelerate peace efforts. Click here to sign the petition.
