Take Action: Urge Electronics Companies to Sign the Conflict Minerals Pledge

The conflict in eastern Congo - the deadliest since World War II - is fueled in significant part by a multi-million dollar trade in minerals. Armed groups generate an estimated $144 million each year by trading four main minerals: the ores that produce the metals tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold.  These materials eventually wind up in electronic devices, such as cell phones, portable music players, and computers, including those sold here in the United States. Given the lack of a transparent minerals supply chain, American consumers continue to indirectly finance armed groups that regularly commit atrocities and mass rape.

Urge the biggest buyers of the 3T’s and gold – major electronics companies – to sign on to the Conflict Minerals Pledge and ensure consumers that their products are conflict free.
