Africa Action

This advocacy organization works on behalf of sub-Saharan African countries on issues of debt relief, HIV/AIDS and the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Its short-term goals are:

• to ensure rapid deployment of a mission of UN peacekeepers to Darfur;

• to monitor the international response to ensure it protects people, facilitates humanitarian aid and creates an environment conducive to a lasting peace;
  • to define policy recommendations and mobilize popular support for initiatives to ensure the effectiveness of the international response and civilian protection.

Africa Action’s campaign seeks support to demand that President Bush   assert leadership through the UN to provide the African Union troops on the ground with a mandate to protect civilians and to expand the mission with a multinational force from other countries outside Africa. The Trustees granted $5,000 to support AA’s advocacy efforts on behalf of the people of Darfur.
