Take action to make a difference

on your campus or in your school.

Did you know... that the conflict in the eastern Congo has gone on for over a decade.  This has been a silent war that has already claimed the lives of over 5 million civilians and is estimated to have a mortality rate of 45,000 per month from famine, preventable disease, displacement, killings, and sexual violence.

One of the most important forces in driving this conflict is fueled by a multi-million dollar trade of minerals that are used in electronic products.  The four minerals are tin, tungsten, tantalum (often called the 3Ts), and gold.*
