We are pushing for a Congressional Hearing on the most serious crimes against humanity in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where 6 million people have died, and half of those people are children under the age of five. This crisis is the deadliest conflict since the Second World War. In October 2010, the United Nations released a Mapping Exercise Report documenting the most serious human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of Congo committed between 1993 and 2003. We want to urge the United States Congress to take action on these crimes by holding a hearing on the UN Mapping Report. Read the report here.

If your senator is on the Foreign Relations Committee, call them and urge them to hold a hearing on the UN Mapping Report released in October 2010.

Are these your senators?

Call your Senators and inform them that a crisis of this magnitude in modern times is unconscionable. Urge them to support justice and accountability for the people of Congo by holding a hearing on the United Nations Mapping Exercise Report.

Justice is at the core of this crisis, and the United States can play a critical role. Join AGLAN by being part of this important action.
