The Honorable Representatives: Carolyn McCarthy, Ranking Member, Gwen Moore, André Carson, David Scott, Maxine Waters, Jim McDermott, United States House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515

Re: Thank you for your Support of Dodd-Frank 1502 Dear Representatives, We, the undersigned organizations, and on behalf of our constituents from your respective districts who have been advocating for an end to the conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), thank you for your support of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 addressing conflict minerals from DRC.

Unlike those who argue that asking American companies to source their products would add unreasonable burdens in a tough economy, you have called attention to the priceless burden the exploitation of DRC’s minerals has placed on the Congolese people. Read the letter in PDF file
