Heading to Washington

I'm headed to Washington DC this weekend for the second Carl Wilkens Fellowship retreat. I look forward to a good time of catching up with the other 20 fellows, sharing best practices re-focusing on the final months of the fellowship.

I'm going up a little early and will meet with Roger Pena, a senior legislative aide for NC Senator Kay Hagan. I look forward to this opportunity to introduce myself, our anti-genocide work and the ongoing issue in Sudan. I plan to ask Sen. Hagan to help us by sending a letter to President Obama urging him to strengthen his Sudan policy to avoid being duped by a Sudanese Government that is notorious for broken promises.

While I'm there, I might drop by Sen. Burr's office as well.

I'll let you know how the meeting goes.
