The Reform movement will lead a 30-day multifaith push to maintain the campaign for Darfur. The campaign announced Tuesday follows a rally this Sunday for victims in the troubled Sudanese region and a meeting activist leaders had with President Bush. “The days after the rally are the most important days,” said Rabbi David Saperstein, who directs Reform’s Religious Action Center. The 30-day campaign will include lobbying of diplomats from nations that are in a position to pressure the Sudanese government to end the massacres carried out by government-allied Arab militias in Darfur. The Reform movement will lead the movement, which already has been endorsed by the National Council of Churches and the Southern Baptist Convention.
