Divest from Darfur
Most of us are unaware that our savings and retirement accounts are invested in companies that help fund the genocide in Darfur. Many US based firms, especially JP Morgan, Franklin Templeton, Fidelity Investments, Capital Group (American Funds), and Vanguard own shares in companies such as PetroChina, whose parent company CNPC does a lot of business with the government in Sudan and help fund the genocide.
There is a national movement afoot to Divest from Darfur. Here is an ad from Save Darfur.

Lobby your member of Congress
The United States and the international community have repeatedly failed to prevent and stop genocide mainly because of a lack of "political will" and in our elected officials and citizens.
When we started Orange County for Darfur, we didn't realize the dismal records that our own politicians had on this issue. Since then, we've strived to stay in touch with them and encourage them to be more active and supportive to help end the genocide.
Host a film screening
There have many excellent documentaries on the genocide in Darfur. Many people have opted to host a casual screening for friends and family at their home.
If you'd like more details or are interested in hosting one, please get in touch with us. Or call Barbara at 714.979.2544.
We're working on making that very easy for you. After all, parting from your hard earned, fruits of your labor should be easy :)
But if you can't wait, please contact us.
