Do more for Darfur?

WELLESLEY

Wellesley resident Susan E. Morgan, a volunteer with the Massachusetts Coalition to Save Darfur, urges the public in a letter to the editor to support efforts to stop genocidal violence in southern Sudan.

Even though the Bush administration declared the violence in Darfur a genocide nearly two years ago, little has changed in the lives of civilians there.

Communities nationwide are mobilizing to stop the genocide. On Sept. 17, a pivotal rally, timed to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly of the United Nations, is being held in New York's Central Park. This could be a time for people to declare, "Not on our watch."

You can read more about Morgan and the Darfur campaign in today's edition of Globe West or sound off on the issue in the Globe West Message Boards.
