You remember a few months back when Milton Glaser created his
We Are All African
campaign to address genocide? This time Glaser zeroes in on Darfur:

This time he wanted to be more specific, pointedly addressing the genocide in Darfur. “It is our job to keep up the pressure on this despicable event,” says Glaser. “The European Holocaust was a demonstration of how human indifference added to the disaster.”

The image can be seen as a 28×38 ft. banner outside of the SVA headquarters and as a series of posters inside 285 subway cars throughout the month of January. Something he probably wouldn’t have been able to do if he wasn’t the celebrity designer he was. We’re just sayin’.
