About

This website provides information about the Sudan Community Compensation proposal that was presented to the Justice Department on September 2, 2015, the need for such a program, the BNPP case, the details of the proposal, and related news. We had hoped that support from so many groups would encourage the Justice Department to allow money for humanitarian aid to begin to flow  from the BNPP settlement to the Sudanese refugees and IDPs who are desperately in need of assistance. Unfortunately, all possibilities of the Justice Department using its discretion to use the BNPP settlement funds to support Sudan Community Compensation ended when Congress passed the Omnibus Budget act in December 2015 allocating all the BNPP funds to terrorist victims in the US.
