THANK YOU FOR JOINING THIS CAUSE!
Since war broke out in 1998, more than five million people have been killed in the Democratic Republic of Congo and tens of thousands of women and girls have been raped and tortured. A cease-fire was declared in 2002, but foreign militias have continued to terrorize the Congolese population. We believe that ending the violence in East Congo, which is greater than any conflict since World War II, should be a foreign policy priority for the United States. As the most powerful woman in the world, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton must use her influence to stop the suffering and slaughter. Specifically, the “Dear Hillary” campaign calls for the enforcement of Public Law 109-456, (DRC Relief. Security, and Democracy Act of 2006) which commits the United States to an active role in establishing peace and security in the DRC.
