Darfur Action Coalition

The Darfur Action  Coalition of Wisconsin, initiated and coordinated by the Milwaukee Jewish Council for Community Relations,  was prompted by the request of the national Jewish communal structure to address the issue of genocide in Darfur.  To date, the Council has brought together more than thirty Jewish and non-Jewish institutions and organizations as well as interested individuals to work collaboratively to raise awareness and promote action on Darfur. 

Locally, the coalition has distributed and collected more than 8,000 postcards for the national Million Voices for Darfur campaign.   Fifty three students, representing UW Madison, Marquette University and UW Milwaukee traveled by bus to the April 30th Rally for Darfur.  A speakers bureau, major event, and local event promotions are in the planning phase.   This effort has provided an opportunity for the Jewish community to build relationships in the community and address a pressing international issue.  

We welcome your partnership and participation in increasing awareness about Darfur.  For information, please contact the MJCCR at 414-390-5735 or at paulas@milwaukeejewish.org.
