Action Opportunity: Less than 24 hours until Senate Hearing on Sudan

This Wednesday at 11 am (EST) the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a hearing titled, Sudan: A Critical Moment for the CPA, Darfur and the Region.  The Committee’s Chair, Senator Kerry, will preside and Special Envoy Gration will be testifying about the Obama administration’s policy on Sudan.

This hearing couldn’t come at a more important time. Last week, with other partner organizations, we released a report card on the Obama administration’s progress on Sudan. On 17 of 28 indicators, the situation on the ground has worsened, while on 11 other measures there has been no change in the past six months.We have an opportunity to make sure the administration is thinking critically about next steps on Sudan and making it a pressing priority.  Please take this moment to see if your Senator is on the Foreign Relations Committee (listed below) – the committee presiding over the hearing. 

Please reach out to the office of your Senator on the Committee and encourage them to do the following.  If your Senator is not on the Committee, you can still reach out to Senatory Kerry, the Committee’s chair.  Ask them to:

  1. Attend the hearing; and

  2. Ask the Special Envoy tough questions about the implementation of the Sudan policy.
