Now we need to build and sustain pressure on the State Department and the White House to implement its recommendations. Please take these simple actions.

Congressman  Donald Payne (D-New Jersey) and Senator Russ Feingold have introduced a  concurrent bill into Congress: H.CON.RES.283.

The resolution calls for tough measures against PNU and ODM leaders who incite violence and refuse to engage in mediation,  including travel bans, and asset freezing.

Please take the following action steps:

1) Contact your Congress representatives and urge them to co-sponsor the bill.

2) Contact the White House, the State Department, and Jendayi Frazer, Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, urging them to act NOW to implement the recommendations of the Senate Resolution on Kenya
