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.
