Since July 2017, hundreds of Tennesseans across the state have called on Senator Corker to cosponsor The Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act (S.1158) and allow this important bill to be marked up in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. We've signed an ongoing petition, called, and written letters.
Yesterday some of our student supporters at the University of Memphis led another statewide call-in day to Senator Corker about the legislation.
We'd like to thank Sara James and Mandy Campbell for organizing the day on campus and inviting their fellow students to join us. And a big thank you to everyone who participated at home and work!
The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide. Operation Broken Silence is working to accelerate their ability to generate lasting change through storytelling, education, advocacy, and emergency relief programs.
If you're not currently involved in empowering the Sudanese people, here are a few easy ways to join us from wherever you are:
1. If You Live In Tennessee, Take Action. If you haven't asked Senator Corker to cosponsor S.1158 yet, you can sign our petition and call his office! TAKE ACTION »
2. Stand For Education. Our local education partner is preparing to add the final grade to the primary school our supporters sponsor in Yida Refugee Camp, South Sudan. There are still a couple of details to wrap up before this can happen, and we need your help to cross the finish line. LEARN MORE »
3. Join The Renewal. The Renewal is an automatic monthly giving program that directly supports storytelling, education, and medical programs in Sudan. It’s like your monthly subscription to a video, music, or internet cable service, but it empowers the Sudanese people! Over 50 people have joined the Renewal this year already. WATCH THE TRAILER »
