Voices From Congo: The Road Ahead

Voices From Congo: The Road Ahead

Live webcast on Tuesday, July 26 starting at 9:30 a.m. EST on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website.

The stakes for the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the coming months are very high, not only for the country but also for the region. Preparations for elections scheduled for November are inadequate, political intimidation and violence are increasing, and human rights violations continue.

We invite you to join us for a unique conference that will bring to Washington a Congolese perspective on the current political and human rights situation and help inform U.S. policy on Congo with constructive ideas and recommendations.

This event is cosponsored by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National Endowment for Democracy, and the Eastern Congo Initiative. It is made possible in part by the Helena Rubinstein Fund.
