Dear partners and supporters of Darfur Women Action Group,
I hope you are all safe from the aftermath of Sandy storm. Our heart and prayers are with those who are affected and those lost loved ones; we ask God to grant them strength and patience and to grant speedy recovery for those who lost their homes and their services. Safe travels to those of you who were unable to travel home because of the storm.
It gives me the pleasure to express my deep appreciation to all of you for taking the time to be with us over the last weekend. A special thanks to those of you who have traveled from as far as California, Vermont, New York , New Jersey, Texas, and Florida, as well as those who are in the DC who made sacrifices to be with us. Your presence meant a lot to us and to the cause of women. It has empowered us and has further contributed to the success of our first ever symposium on Women and Genocide and gave us more energy to continue to fight for our people’s rights.
I believe our effort for movement building to confront genocide is moving forward with more confidence because of your support and dedication, without which achieving the symposium would not have been possible.
As promised, the updates from the symposium will be up on our website soon, and we will also soon share with you our strategy and upcoming action.
President, Darfur Women Action Group
