Campus Progress National Conference

Judithe Registre with Women for Women International

Campus Progress and the Enough Project collaborated to focus this past week’s Campus Progress National Forum, “Delivering Change,” on the violent situation in eastern Congo. The conference featured speeches by President Clinton and Speaker Pelosi, as well as by numerous journalists and human rights activists. Women for Women International’s Judith Registre spoke on the Enough Project’s RAISE Hope for Congo panel, which focused on human rights abuses in Congo. Joined by other human rights activists, Judith spoke about the ever-pressing need to empower women socially, economically and politically. The resounding message was a powerful call to action: every person must live his or her life in such a way that promotes human rights around the globe. Judithe’s presentation and the conference were both incredibly successful, inspiring an audience of more than 1,300 activists and student leaders.
