This letter urges the Secretary-General of the UN to ensure that the Southern Sudanese have the opportunity to participate in a free and fair election.

Southern Sudan will hold a referendum on independence from Sudan on January 9, 2011. Take this opportunity to learn more about Sudan, the Episcopal Church in Sudan, and efforts to maintain peace in the region. Get involved by signing this open letter and lighting a virtual candle for peace.
