Support Democracy and Human Rights in the Congo!

From our partners in the PC(USA) Office of Public Witness

Please contact your members of congress and urge them to work vigorously to ensure that the United States supports democracy and human rights in the Democratic Republic of Congo!

The State Clerk of the General Assembly stated the following in a statement of concern this week:

The Presbyterian Church (USA) is deeply concerned about the recent elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo and, in particular, the physical and emotional trauma that has been inflicted on the Congolese people as a result of political violence. Our church has had a long and historic relationship with the Congolese people; we share their aspirations for a peaceful, secure and democratic nation, one that is governed by the rule of law and the collective will of the people and in which the rights and dignity of all people are respected. The 213th (2001) General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) called for “free and fair elections of leaders for the Democratic Republic of the Congo,” a principle to which our church remains committed today.
