The Conflicts Minerals Rule MUST stand. Yes, it costs some businessmen money. Repealing it would cost the human rights of our brothers and sisters.

Transparency in the supply chain fights the kind of horrific violence we have too often seen in places like the "Democratic" Republic of Congo.

Our priorities should be clear. Human lives, emotional health, physical wholeness must come first. These are people, like us, affected by the abuses

Thank you.
