2-Time NBA All-Star Luol Deng to Host Peace Event to Inspire Fellow South Sudanese in Diaspora to Unite

South Sudanese Basketball Player to Rally Fellow Countrymen and Women to Pave the Road Towards Peace - Together

In the eyes of the world, the conflict in South Sudan is an international issue that the government and rebels involved should resolve. However, for the people of South Sudan, this is a crisis that affects every man, woman and child deeply – whether at home or in the diaspora. For Luol Deng, peace is attainable if the people unite and join hands. Together, unity is possible.

“In the spirit of peace and unity, I’ll be hosting South Sudan Unite, an evening of celebrating the arts and culture. This is very important to me, because the time is now to focus on our oneness and identity as a people, rather than our differences” stated Luol. “As a people, if we can have the courage to represent the change we want to see, it means we also have the power to steer our nation back on the right track. We cannot allow what started as political conflict between a few people to take more lives and lead to more senseless suffering, robbing us of the country we dreamt of when we voted for and gained independence on July 9th, 2011.”

When South Sudan gained independence, the people celebrated as one, dancing in the streets all night and embracing one another without hesitation. Today those same people are divided. Optimism has been overshadowed by contempt. Community has been undermined by distrust. These divisions are not only inside South Sudan, but also throughout the diaspora communities. It is time to unite in order to save our promised future.

“To the youth of South Sudan; the future of our families and our communities is in your hands” Luol insists. “We need your help. Let us once again find ourselves, to enhance our commonalities and fight for a better future. We can start that journey through South Sudan Unite. It will be an enjoyable night of live music, fashion, and coming together to remember the diverse beauty that makes up our young country.”
