Sudanese Coloradans will meet Friday evening with a group of local politicians to demand that they take a public stance against the war in Sudan, help people who have been displaced by the violent conflict and find ways to get humanitarian aid into the country at a much larger scale and swifter pace.
At the meeting, Sudanese Coloradans are also expected to ask local politicians to do more to speed up the refugee resettlement process.
“That is something that Colorado can provide,” said Wafa Saeed, one of the organizers of the event. “If we’re going to be a state that welcomes refugees, this is a situation where we need to stand up and actually be about what we say we’re about. Any type of aid that can be provided to those families is needed.”
