Ask the Candidates about Darfur

What Will You Do for Darfur as President?

It is time for the presidential candidates to tell us how, if elected, they intend to end the genocide in Darfur. Senator Obama and Senator McCain have expressed concern, but have yet to provide any concrete details of their plans.

Ending genocide must be a top priority on our next president’s foreign policy agenda, rather than empty rhetoric. The candidates should:

1. Formulate a clear policy on Darfur.
2. Post this on the “issues” section of their website.
3. Reference their Darfur policy in their stump speech.
