Testimony of John Prendergast Before the House Appropriations Subcommittee for State Foreign Operations

Testimony of John Prendergast Before the House Appropriations Subcommittee for State Foreign Operations
East and central Africa is battered by an arch of chronic conflict that stretches from Somalia to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Testimony of John Prendergast Before the US Commission on International Religious Freedom

Testimony of John Prendergast Before the US Commission on International Religious Freedom

Congressional Human Rights Caucus Briefing on the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Congressional Human Rights Caucus Briefing on the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Thank you very much for the opportunity to brief the Caucus on this important and too often neglected topic. Before I begin, I, along with all of my colleagues at ENOUGH, would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of Congressman Tom Lantos. Congressman Lantos was a tireless advocate for human rights. His passing is a loss not only to those of us working on these issues, but to all of the disenfranchised and oppressed people in the world who have been touched by his leadership and vision ...
