We will be there as part of a 90-person activist delegation with the Campaign to ensure the Global Summit results in meaningful commitments for activists and survivors on the ground.

Visit us at the Fringe: the program is open to the public at the ExCel Centre in London from June 10-12, 9am-9pm everyday. Find out more information, including how to get to the centre, and download a program of events from the Global Summit website.
We are excited to announce the launch of our multimedia exhibit, Beauty in the Middle: Women of Congo Speak Out. It will be free and open to the public from June 10-12 at the ExCel Centre in London.
Beauty in the Middle: Women of Congo Speak Out presents the story of the conflict in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and the women grassroots activists who have mobilized against incredible odds to end rape, and find a way to justice and peace.
View the incredible images of award-winning photographer Pete Muller and hear the women of Congo speak about their work through films by Artefact Creative.
