Groups of young activists rallied at Federal Plaza, 50 W. Adams St., April 19 in hopes of drawing attention to the humanitarian crisis in Sudan. Youth United for Dafur, a coalition of 40 Chicago youth and student groups, aim to promote education and raise money for Sister Schools, a new program that supports education of Darfuri refugee students. The Chronicle talks to students about their support for Darfur and how they want the Obama administration to take action in promoting peace and justice in Sudan.
