Muslim Student Awareness Network is hosting this event.

The situation in Darfur has been described as one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world today, with more than 70,000 deaths and upwards of a million people left homeless. We will host a discussion with Sudan’s ambassador to the US and members of the 'Give Peace A Chance' Coalition on how the international community can help to alleviate the suffering of the people of Darfur and bring peace back into their lives.

Mr. Khidir Haroun Ahmed has served as Sudan’s ambassador to the US since August 2003 and previously served as the Ambassador of Sudan to Japan and Algeria.

Hodari Abdul-Ali is the Executive Director of the 'Give Peace a Chance’ Coalition, a non-profit, independent research organization formed to raise public awareness about U.S. foreign policy in Africa.

Rahiel Tesfamariam, Stanford class of ’03, is a journalist for the Washington Informer and recently embarked on the 'Give Peace a Chance’ fact-finding mission to Sudan to investigate the crisis in Darfur.
