Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 9th at 1:30 p.m. EDT, John Prendergast, Founding Director of the Enough Project and Co-Founder of The Sentry, will be testifying in the U.S. Congress before the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations in Room 2172 of the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, DC.
This is OPEN to the public. If you’re unable to join, the hearing will be available live on the Committee website here.
This Congressional hearing will explore the growing trend of government incursions on civil society space in Sub-Saharan Africa focusing on countries such as Sudan, South Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. John will highlight how the United States government and the broader international community can build leverage to address the nexus of conflict and corruption in this region, which has resulted in widespread oppression and the closing of political space.
