Yesterday members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to President Obama urging the need for a revised Sudan policy with a focus on human rights.

Yesterday, sixty-two members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to President Obama urging a shift in the United States’ policy on Sudan. The letter was initiated by Sudan Caucus co-chair, Congressman Michael Capuano.

The letter underscores the need for a revised policy approach in saying, “…recent events in Southern Kordofan, Blue Nile, and Darfur provide clear evidence that the Administration’s policy toward Sudan must be reinvigorated to address the urgent humanitarian and civilian crises facing millions of Sudanese.” Additionally, the letter highlights the worsening humanitarian situation, describes the root cause of the problems in Sudan as the “marginalization of the peripheries by Khartoum”, and calls for the Administration to “marshal the international community” to end violence and support prospects for long-term peace.
