Save Darfur Coalition Meeting


I been participating in sharing my experience in Boise for about four years now and three of those have been with the Save Darfur Coalition group.

Save Darfur Coalition is another group that has been working solely to raise awareness of the situation in Darfur, Sudan. I have been attending their meetings for the past three years now and it’s amazing how fast the numbers have been adding up.

On Saturday, April 3, Save Darfur is hosting a meeting at the Ann Frank Memorial. There will be a march from the Capitol to the Memorial starting at 11 a.m. The meeting at the Memorial begins at about 11:45 a.m.

A number of Darfur survivors will speak, share their experiences on what it means to be from Darfur. There will also be traditional drumming and dancing as usual and I will share some of my unpublished poetry in the end.

You are all we invited to join and help raised awareness on Darfur ahead of the Sudanese elections coming this April 24. There are some worries among Sudanese people that the elections might not be fair and so the Save Darfur Coalition has been signing a petition to urge President Obama not to support these elections.
