Something horrifying is happening in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC): men, women, and children are being coerced to work in precious mineral mines by soldiers in the name of profit.

These mines are under the control of various armed militia groups and the Congolese National Army and contain precious minerals like tantalum, coltan, cassiterite, wolframite, and gold. These minerals are used in many of the electronic items we used today and are therefore in great demand.

To obtain these resources at the greatest margin of profit to themselves, the soldiers are using physical and sexual force to subvert the civilians into excavating the minerals for them. Send a message Congress asking them to solidify legislation addressing these heinous crimes against humanity.

Dear Congress member:

I was appalled to learn of the abhorrent human rights abuses that are happening right now in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It's an utter abomination that the armed soldiers in the region are raping, torturing, and forcing hard, manual labor upon innocent men, women, and children.

I am writing to ask that you direct efforts toward providing the people of Congo with the opportunity to live free and healthy lives without the worry they will be captured and put to work — or worse.

The Congolese deserve the same freedoms we have. Please push important legislation through Congress that will go toward combating human slavery in the Congo.
