Orange County for Darfur was formed in June 2007 to raise awareness among local residents and elected officials to the genocide, and the all-volunteer members have worked diligently to continue pressing their message ever since. Their next monthly planning meeting is from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. Tuesday at 2424 SE Bristol St., Suite 300, Newport Beach. Those interested in learning more about joining are encouraged to attend and/or visit ocfordarfur.org.
Besides the planning meetings and other assorted events Orange County for Darfur and Moving Target Theatre present regular, free stagings of the theatrical production In Darfur throughout Southern California. Written by Winter Mitchell and directed by Michael David Fox, In Darfur tells the story of three intertwined lives at a camp for internally displaced people: an aid working trying to save lives, a journalist seeking the big story and a Darfuri woman who wants nothing more than safety. Following each performance is a discussion session where members of the audience can ask questions. If you'd like the play performed for your group, call (949) 300-4100.
