RAISE Hope for Congo

Protect & Empower Congo’s Women

In September 2008, ENOUGH will launch the RAISE Hope for Congo campaign. With the ultimate goal of protecting and empowering Congolese women and girls, the campaign will work to: raise awareness about the conflict and the resulting widespread sexual violence against women and girls; cultivate and educate activists about the root causes of and solutions to the conflict; increase news coverage of the conflict in DR Congo, and; influence and change policy on DR Congo through promotion of the 3 Ps ? Peace, Protection, and Punishment ? plus Prevention.

The event will be October 28th at 4:30 in Sci Center 101.
