#StandWithCongo is a global human rights campaign in solidarity with the Congolese peace movement. We address corruption in Congo mining and support civil society. We share Congolese narratives from DRC and the diaspora while organizing activist communities around the world to take concrete action in support of peace in Congo.

As a key leader in Congolese civil society told us during a recent interview in Bukavu, "I hope you're not going to give up on that campaign for conflict minerals." Now is the time to double down on transparency efforts to solidify progress made against armed activity and for sustainable economic opportunities for the Congolese people and their allies around the world.
