United for Sudan: Take Action Today

On April 15, 2023, violence broke out between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in Sudan. According the the IOM, in the past nearly 12 months more than 6.5 million people have been internally displaced, more than 2 million have fled across Sudan's borders — 729,473 into Chad alone — and more than 50% of those who have been displaced are children under the age of 18. As a result of the conflict, Sudan is now on the verge of famine and recognized as the world's worst hunger crisis.


Yet, the people of Sudan continue to fall out of the focus of the international community.


This April 15, members from iACT's US team will travel to Washington, DC to take part in the United for Sudan Rally in partnership with Refugees International, Amnesty International USA, the Sudanese American Physicians Association, the Sudanese American Public Affairs Association, Refugee Congress, Never Again Coalition, Girifna, US Educated Sudanese Association, American Friends Service Committee, NOIR United International, and Advocacy Network for Africa.


How can you help the people of Sudan?


  1. Sign the Petition: On April 15, we will be hand delivering this petition to the White House calling on President Biden to speak out on Sudan. The petition includes a number of specific asks of the administration, such as increasing humanitarian assistance. Add your voice!

  2. Join the Rally: Let's get loud for Sudan on April 15! If you can, join us at Freedom Plaza at 12pm for a rally and march to the White House. The event is free, but an RSVP will help us know how many friends to expect.

  3. SpeakOutOnSudan: Even if you can't join us in DC, you can still be a part of the movement. You can make a real difference by sharing news and information about Sudan and the crisis with your community both on and offline. We encourage you to use the hashtag #SpeakOutOnSudan when sharing on social media.
