24 Hours for Darfur starts Sunday, September 16, 2007

I wanted to let you know about 24 Hours for Darfur, a rally in New York City urging world leaders to remember Darfur when they meet for the U.N. General Assembly on September 18.

24 Hours for Darfur is the flagship event for Global Days for Darfur - a day of rallies and events that will bring together thousands of activists on six continents demanding international action to end the genocide in Darfur.

What: 24 Hours for Darfur
When: Sunday, September 16, 11 am - 2 pm
Where: Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. 47th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues in Manhattan

The rally will feature hundreds of short video appeals collected from Darfuris and concerned citizens around the world. Several Darfur experts from leading human rights organizations will also speak about the importance of a long-term peace process

Visit http://www.savedarfur.org/gdfd or http://www.24HoursForDarfur.org for more information, or to add your video appeal to the rally.

The Darfur People’s Association of New York will collect clothes and school supplies to be sent to Darfuri refugees in Chad. Please bring any clothes or materials - especially children’s clothes - you can contribute.

Thanks for your support, and we hope to see you on Sunday!

Sincerely

Ben Prochazka
Save Darfur Coalition
