WASHINGTON — The Enough Project welcomes the U.S. Senate’s decision to approve John Kerry's nomination as the next Secretary of State and looks forward to working with him in this new capacity to address and prevent genocide and crimes against humanity.

Enough Project Executive Director John C. Bradshaw said:

“As Secretary of State, John Kerry will soon face a number of pressing foreign policy issues around the globe from the Middle East to Asia. But his extensive background and knowledge of the Sudans and the Democratic Republic of Congo also position him to positively affect the serious conflicts in these two countries.  The State Department, under Secretary Kerry, can play a key role in promoting an inclusive peace process in the Congo and addressing what he has described as a ‘human tragedy’ unfolding in Sudan's South Kordofan and Blue Nile States. The Enough Project looks forward to working closely with Secretary Kerry and his team in the coming years.”
