A History of Results
When Ambassador Susan Rice was preparing to appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in January of 2009, targeted Rapid Responders contacted their Senators serving on the committee, with recommended questions to ask Ms. Rice. As a direct result of Rapid Responders' efforts, Senator Menendez said the following at the confirmation hearing (click the picture below to watch):
"I want to applaud your stand that you have taken concerning genocide in the Darfur region of the Sudan and I want you to know that as one Senator we’re looking forward to try to change the course of events there. It’s one of the top priorities I have. It’s what—outside of Iraq and Afghanistan—it’s what I hear most from my constituency about."
