Video Spotlight: Javier Bardem: Peace for Congo’s Mothers

In a conversation in honor of Mother’s Day, Javier Bardem discusses the world’s most dangerous place for mothers and their daughters: the Congo. Armed militias in the Congo use rape as a weapon of war, in their fight to control the Congo’s minerals. These minerals power our everyday electronics. This Mother’s Day, add your voice to the conflict-free movement at www.RaiseHopeForCongo.org.
