How we are raising awareness:
• Organizing weekly fundraisers selling ribbons and wristbands to donate to the cause
• Planning for two influential Sudanese nationals to come to our campus and speak on behalf of their people and the suffering which occurs there.
• Writing articles to our local newspapers
• Forming a letter-writing campaign to Congress
• Taping a public service announcement
• Creating a website
• Establishing a Human Rights Watch organization on campus that will be devoted to promoting awareness and organizing civil service projects.
