Nation-wide Calling Campaign: TODAY

Today is our coordinated nation-wide advocacy campaign. Fellow STAND advocates are currently meeting face-to-face with our Members of Parliament in Ottawa to discuss in detail the need for Canadians to support the Sudans. Today is our opportunity as a nation to let them know that the need for continuing to fund projects in the Sudans is an important issue to their constituents. Find your local MP’s phone number here and vocalize your concern.

Not sure what to say? Check out our fact sheet here and choose the points that you feel most strongly about. Here is a sample script:

My name is _______ and I am calling from________ (region). I am calling because I strongly believe that Canada should continue funding its support to the Sudans.

Although Canada currently helps through aid and supporting the peace process, funding cuts are expected over the next month. Conflict is ongoing in the  three regions of South Kordofan, Blue Nile and Darfur. As a result, over two million people are currently displaced due to food insecurity and conflict.

As a Canadian, I care about the Sudans and strongly believe cutting funding and aid to these regions is simply unacceptable.

Exercise your democratic rights and tell your MPs that the Sudans matter to you. Together we are capable of making the impact the Sudans so direly require!

ACTION ALERT: Nation-Wide Calling Campaign – February 6th 2013

As mentioned in our New Year’s message, STAND Canada is participating in an advocacy campaign aimed at targeting our Members of Parliament to vocalize that continued action in Sudan and South Sudan is important to Canadian citizens. With widespread funding cuts anticipated towards international engagements over the next couple of months, we have a small window of opportunity to make a huge impact on Canada’s participation in the Sudans. The first step as concerned Canadians is to participate in our  Nation-Wide Calling Campaign to be held on Wednesday February 6th, 2013 at 10am- 5pm.

Here is the three step process:

  1. Read and get familiarized with our concise fact-sheet outlining the current crises in Sudan and South Sudan, alongside Canada’s current and past engagements. Have any questions? Contact Mieka Buckely-Pearson (STAND’s Operational Advocacy Director) at mbuckleypearson@standcanada.org.
    mbuckleypearson@standcanada.org.
  2.  Participate in a nation-wide calling campaign on February 6th. Call your Members of Parliament (both your academic institution’s and home town’s MPs) to remind them that their constituents want Canada to maintain its involvement and continue supporting the people in Sudan and South Sudan. Tell your friends to join in – our strength is defined by our numbers.
  3.  Remain persistent with the phone calls. If each of our members call their MPs 5 times, we can raise the awareness we need to make the Sudans a concern. If you are consistently led to a voice-mail system, call back in an hour – call as many times as necessary to ensure they receive the message and support our cause.

We need your help to ensure that Canada continues to consider Sudan and South Sudan priorities in our foreign policy. Join STAND members from across the nation on February 6th create a national impact. Check out our facebook event HERE. 

Mark your calendars & show Canada we care.
