Congo Global Action is a global alliance of humanitarian, human rights, environmental, and faith-based organizations, students, members of the Congolese Diaspora, and other grassroots movements.
We have come together to advocate with one voice for people of the Democratic Republic of Congo and urge increased local and international response for the post-war and post-election situation in the Congo.
Over twenty-five organizations have officially become members of the coalition since its founding in 2006, including the International Rescue Committee.
Together the Congo Global Action coalition forms a movement far greater than the sum of its parts and a momentum that generates action, policy change, and increased funding for the people of the Congo.
Members of the coalition share their talents and expertise to create an effective high-level policy effort with a groundswell of grassroots support.
Congo Global Action is planning three grassroots conferences in 2007. Each conference will feature keynote speakers, teach people about the Congo, and help participants become advocacy leaders.
Each conference will include a Lobby Day and a major media-attracting event to raise awareness about the Congo. The conferences will be held in March 2007 in Brussels, Belgium, in October 2007 in Washington, DC, and in January 2008 in Nairobi, Kenya.
