Academy-award winner George Clooney will speak at the Save Darfur Rally to Stop Genocide in Washington, D.C. on April 30, which is co-sponsored by the American Jewish World Service.
George Clooney and his father, Nick, just returned on Sunday from a fact-finding trip to the Darfur region. They now know from first-hand evidence how dire the situation in Darfur has become. Hundreds of thousands have been killed and nearly one-third of the population of Darfur has been displaced. And the world simply watches and waits.

By the way, Clooney will appear on the Oprah show today, Wednesday the 26th, to talk about his trip and the situation in Darfur.
