Our first DARFUR ACTION DAY on Sat., June 4th at the Talking Drum Cafe in Holyoke, MA was inspiring with dance, speakers, and inquisitive participants. We want to thank Nathan, Chris and all those at The Talking Drum Cafe for sponsoring and hosting this event.

Also thanks to Tamador and the dancers of The Bride of the Nile Dance Group (yes, they are Magda's daughters) for the beautiful dancing. Look for them next Sat. June 11th at our 2nd DARFUR ACTION DAY --- SEE BELOW.

Thanks to our inspiring speakers Magda Ahmed, Mohamed Good, Joel Rosen, and Joseph Wronka for their informative talks and question and answer periods.

And thanks to Magda and her mom for the delicious falefels and other Sudanese food.

There is a group in Boston organizing to stop the slaughter and help the people of Darfur. They are starting to plan activities now leading up to a March on Washington in the fall. Your two groups should work together!
