President Trump Should Work to Save Sudanese Woman

President Trump Should Work to Save Sudanese Woman

The cause of #JusticeForNoura enjoys unprecedented support from the people of Sudan, as well as the international community. With pressure from Washington, this woman can be saved from the death penalty. It won’t be complete justice for what she’s been through, nor a solution to the larger human rights abuses in Sudan, but it would be an important step in the right direction.
