Gov. Brown: Bring attention to CA conflict minerals legislation. Host a public signing ceremony.

    1. Petition by

      Enough Project

The California State Legislature just passed SB 861, making California the first state in the nation to pass conflict minerals legislation. This legislation is a major milestone on the path toward peace in eastern Congo, and will go a long way in providing incentive to companies to clean up their supply chains so that minerals found in our electronics products are not longer fueling violence and instability in the region.

We need to call as much attention to the bill as possible so California inspires other states to pass similar legislation.

Help SB 861 get the attention it deserves by asking Gov. Jerry Brown sign the legislation during a public signing ceremony.

      A public signing ceremony would help bring light to this issue and hopefully inspire such other major states as New York and Texas to follow suit...?

      As a congolese who will be located at L.A soon i would like to show all my support to the good development of this country whom is going through a never ending nightmare and the next november election won't change anything.

      The change will come from the willingness of international community to do something there and by the diaspora all around the world.

      It is a shame that the RD Congo is still in this situation in 2011.

      Hope that this beautiful country will get prestige and the glory that it deserves.
