November 30th- Congo Rising: Reception and Fundraiser

Saje Fitzgerald and April McNeil invite you to join them in launching Congo Rising, a Victoria-based initiative for women’s rights in the DRCongo.

This reception and fundraiser will take place on Tuesday November 30th at 7:00 p.m. at The Office, VIP Lounge.

Congo Rising is an organization that helps bring the voices of Congolese women to Canadians through outreach activities.

Congolese women have spoken: they want Canadian women to use their influence to stop violence in the DRC fueled by Canada’s investments in mining. Tis’ the season to be giving…so let’s give our collective energy right now in response to this call. We have the power to influence Canadian investments in the DRC. We’ll show you how!

Saje Fitzgerald will speak to Canada’s role in mining women’s rights: how we finance violence against women in the DRC and how we can change this.

April McNeil will launch Congo Rising jewelry – an inspired line of bracelets and necklaces that support a film project and our alliance with women in the DRC.

The evening will also include an opportunity to bid on some exciting silent auction items, including, a painting by local artist, Susan Corner.

Advance ticket sales only – $30.00/person. Ticket price includes a cocktail and tasty hors d’oeuvres.

*To purchase your advance ticket, please contact April McNeil – mcneila@uvic.ca or Saje Fitzgerald sajefitz@uvic.ca*
