Earlier this month, George Clooney and John Prendergast traveled to Southern Sudan for their charity Not On Our Watch. As the duo attempts to stop what could be the next Darfur, they look to their fellow Americans for help.

Tensions continue to rise between Northern and Southern Sudan as the Jan. 9, 2011 vote for Southern Sudan’s independence approaches. However, Clooney and Predergast preach that if we reach out to Obama through letters and email showing support for international pressure and robust diplomacy, we have the opportunity to stop this war before it starts and ultimately save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

“The international community was late to Darfur. Late to the Congo. Late to Rwanda. Late to Bosnia. Tell our President that the people of South Sudan can’t afford for us to be late again.”
