Goal: 30,000 Progress: 3,563
Sponsored by: The Hunger Site

Sudan has an extremely high population displacement rate, yet protection of civilians and the humanitarian workers who assist them is lackluster at best. Widespread insecurity, banditry, and kidnappings terrorize displaced persons and aid workers alike.

The United States and the United Nations have the power to help these displaced people in Sudan. That's why we're telling UN Ambassador Samantha Power to prioritize the safety and security of displaced Sudanese and humanitarian aid workers in and around Sudan.

The displaced people of Sudan are counting on us. Please, write Ambassador Power and remind her of the plight of over three million displaced Sudanese, and ask her to protect them and the humanitarian aid workers who assist them.

Dear Ambassador Power,

Over three million Sudanese civilians are internally displaced or living as refugees. We urge you to continue exercising US leadership at the UN Security Council to address their urgent needs and help prevent further displacement of civilians in Sudan. The UNSC must improve security for displaced people of Darfur.

We therefore encourage you to work through the UNSC to:

· Improve UNAMID's effectiveness in protecting civilians;
· Improve protection for aid workers, as operations in Darfur are increasingly threatened by widespread insecurity;
· Support work by aid and UN agencies to improve IDP livelihoods, as well as their voluntary return once safe conditions emerge; and,
· Monitor the extension of UNMIS's protection mandate, noting attacks by the Lord's Resistance Army and increased interethnic violence in the South; and,

Sudan's refugees in eastern Chad, Eritrea, and Ethiopia also require urgent attention. The UNSC must ensure security and aid for these refugees.

We urge you to:

· Ensure the UNSC monitors the security situation in refugee camps;
· Support preparations by the UN, aid groups and local governments to address security gaps.

The US and the UNSC must prioritize the human rights of Sudanese refugees seeking safety in Egypt, the US and elsewhere.

We call on the Obama administration to work to improve the situation for Sudanese refugees who resettle in the U.S., and often receive inadequate support after they arrive. The administration should develop a plan to resettle more Sudanese in the US, assist in the integration of refugee communities into American society, and continue financial and diplomatic support for UNHCR to help protect refugees.

As advocates, we welcome your leadership in working to end the conflict in Darfur and support peace and justice in Sudan. We are hopeful that with your leadership as the US representative to the UNSC, we can work together to help better the lives of Sudanese civilians and create an environment of peace and justice in Sudan.
