Joined by other Sudanese and like-minded people, DRP is working to unify the voices of Darfurians everywhere and bring increased international attention to bear on the situation there. DRP works to achieve conflict resolution and reconciliation among the ethnic groups in Darfur; fosters the development of democratic institutions and respect for human rights. Members travel the U.S. to inform the public and bear witness to the current genocide, rape and displacement of their families and compatriots.

Board members are well informed about conflict resolution and have actively brokered, since 2004, Darfur-Darfur Dialogues that help to sow the seeds of peace and prepare for the long-term rehabilitation of the Darfur region.
