Sudan Sunrise Remembers Congressman Donald Payne

Congressman Payne passed away this morning in his native state of New Jersey, after a brief struggle with colon cancer. His work in Congress on international justice issues led directly to a resolution declaring genocide in Darfur. He will be remembered by the Sudanese people, his congressional colleagues, and the international advocacy community as a champion for justice and reconciliation in Sudan.
