Orinda-Lafayette Presbyterians for Congo organize a network


KPFA Evening News, 12.01.2012

The Orinda-Lafayette Presbyterian Congo Team has begun organizing a network that they can activate to pressure the U.S. government, as European activists have, to pressure the U.S. government to stop supporting the Rwandan and Ugandan regimes implicated in the Congo conflict and to help advance the cause of peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Rena Myers Dahlkamp, the team's coordinator, encouraged anyone who would like to become a part of their network to contact her at 925-247-0482.
