Today, the Enough Project is launching the Conflict Minerals initiative to hold responsible electronic companies that are funding militias, war, and death by purchasing conflict minerals in Congo. Many of these companies may not even be fully aware of the pain they are causing through these purchases, but the time has come for everybody to be responsible for their actions. The people of the Congo have suffered enough. Join us in support of this campaign, and know that you are contributing to helping people who need your help – right now.
Last summer, I traveled to the Congo and saw firsthand the rape survivors, the former soldiers, and the devastation that war has done. It’s time to do what we can.
Join us. We have had enough.
