Action in Sudan works to find practical solutions to the crisis in the Darfur region of Sudan. We do this through political action at the State level. We are presently pushing a bill through Congress in support of the national Divestment movement. This bill would make it illegal for the Wisconsin pension funds to be invested in companies that are investing in the Sudanese government. Note: this is targeted, not blanketed, divestment.
We also do a lot of public speaking events to keep people aware of the crisis and educate them about the history both of Darfur and Sudan.
We also raise money for rebuilding projects in Southern Sudan. We personally know three Sudanese refugees (Lost Boys of Sudan) who have started in NGO’s in their home villages. They work on water access, education and health.
