The United States of America was once a key leader among the world’s nations in bringing peace to Sudan. Since 2006 that leadership has faltered and failed. The next President of the United States will have to work hard to reverse years worth of neglect concerning foreign policy towards Sudan. The marginalized peoples of Sudan, Sudanese/American citizens, and US activists have long called for a US foreign policy that embraces civilian protection, pushes for justice for perpetrators and supports the democratic pulses that continue to spread amongst Sudanese. The current US foreign policy does not tackle any of these asks; in fact, it openly states that the current genocidal regime should remain in power.
