Focus world attention to stop a genocide in Sudan

Unbelievable as it seems, a true genocide is being carried out in Sudan as you
read this.  The killing is being largely ignored by the world’s
governments, though a few souls are working hard to bring the situation
to light.

The Passion of the Present
The Passion of the Present
is the idea of Joanne Cipolla Moore. The site was created in
the past few days by her and a group of friends in order to quickly get the
word out and raise money for organizations working to stop the genocide.

The site provides extensive information on the situation as it is
unfolding, and links to four organizations that are making a difference
by bringing witness to Sudan

Witness is a power that has been shown to reduce genocide. 
Genocide thrives when it can be carried out unseen, on the lost people
of the world.

Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Church World Service, and Doctors Without Borders are all witnessing in Sudan.

Next step is a blog on the site, and developing relationships with
people on the ground.  If you know of bloggers in or around
Sudan–or people who might become email bloggers, please let me know.

You can help by spreading the word, linking to the site, and by contributing to organizations working on the ground in Sudan.
