Robin Wright just got back from the eastern Congo, a trip she took with the organization Raise Hope for Congo. Now, she’s ready to share her experience and inspire others to help end the use of conflict minerals.

Robin Wright and John Prendergast will be speaking on why student activism matters at a free event at Georgetown University on September 14th as a part of the Conflict Free Campus Initiative. Want to be there? Space is limited so reserve your spot now.

The Conflict Free Campus Initiative is a movement that asks student activists to encourage their university to pressure electronic companies to stop using conflict minerals. Schools are often big purchasers of products that use conflict minerals like computers. Because of the power of consumers, if big buyers demand that electronic companies stop using conflict minerals, those companies will be more likely to listen. Hence the need for student activism to get their universities on board.

Learn more about how to get involved with the Conflict Free Campus Initiative, or just how to speak out against conflict minerals at the event, or if you’re not in the D.C. area, at the Raise Hope for Congo website.
