Dear New School Students,
To those of you who attended Project Africa and the Mantle’s event The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo during Congo Week and signed postcards as part of the Dear Hillary Campaign we thank you!
As a result of all the postcards that were sent to the State Department for Secretary Clinton’s birthday, members of the Dear Hillary Campaign have been invited to a meeting at the State Department with Clinton’s Ambassador at large for Global Women’s Issues Melanne Verveer. The New School has been invited to send a representative.
The meeting is set for Wednesday, December 15, at 2:00 p.m. This is a marvelous opportunity to have Clinton’s -or the person next to Clinton’s-ear and get the US to abide by its commitments to the DRC.
Rest assured we will keep you updated!
For those of you who were not able to attend and wish to learn more (and see Maurice Carney and Dr. Mamadou Diallo’s presentations), please visit:www.projectafrica.info and click on the AFRICA @ 50 link.
