Darfur Fast for Life Campaign

May 26, 2009 – Black lawmakers announced last week they will begin a limited hunger strike today to draw more attention to the situation in Darfur and to encourage President Obama to take steps in addressing the crisis.

One of those African-American lawmakers who will be joining the Darfur Fast for Life campaign on Tuesday is California Rep. Maxine Waters (D).  

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus announced they want to meet with President Obama to discuss placing sanctions against Sudan, the deployment of international peacekeeping forces and starting a new push for more cooperation from China regarding the situation in Darfur.

Lawmakers are requesting a meeting as soon as possible, but with the recent developments on Monday with the announcement by North Korea that they have completed a successful nuclear test and plan to launch more short-range missiles, Darfur may once again find itself  lower on the priority list.

Waters will be posting a blog on the topic later today, so check back to see what she has to say about her first day fasting.

Find out why many American households are choosing to protect their families by taking a Proactive Wellness approach to Family Health! If you drink alcohol, coffee, caffeinated beverages, smoke, have an immune system compromised due to environmental factors, or suffer from the persistent discomfort of dehydration you owe it to yourself to adopt a proactive wellness strategy.
