Join RAISE Hope for Congo's Activist Call

Today, at 3 pm EST, join policy makers and activists for this month’s RAISE Hope for Congo activist conference call. Enough’s Candice Knezevic, the Congo campaign manager, will moderate the discussion, which will feature:

  • Peter Quaranto, Legislative Assistant for African Affairs & Global Health, Senator Russell Feingold (D-WI)
  • Sumona Guha, State Department Fellow, Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL)
  • John Bagwell, Field Manager, Enough Project

We’ll talk about Enough’s new Conflict Minerals initiative and upcoming legislation in the Senate, which address the links between the illicit mineral trade and sexual violence in Congo. We’ll get into the details of how activists can play an integral role in this important movement, and as always, we’ll finish with a Q&A, so come with questions.

Please join us this afternoon.
