StopGenocideNow is a grassroots volunteer organization that is working to halt the ongoing genocide in Darfur. Three of my friends from StopGenocideNow have been visiting refugee camps along the Chad-Darfur border, and we've put together a video blog map to help put names and faces to the people who have been affected by what the United Nations has described as one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. You can also learn more about what's going on in Sudan by checking out the Crisis in Darfur layer in Google Earth or by visiting the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's page on Darfur.
By the way, StopGenocideNow also posed a question during the recent CNN/YouTube Democratic debate, asking the candidates what they would do to stop the genocide in Darfur. You can see the candidates' responses too.
