Right now, while you’re reading this email on your phone or computer, you may have a product of slavery in your hand.
The reality is that almost every electronic device we use in our everyday lives could include conflict minerals mined by slaves in the Congo.
This week, we brought together some of the world’s leading experts to discuss slavery in electronics – and right now, you can download the free podcast of that discussion to learn a few simple steps you can take to prevent slavery from entering your pocket.
You already know that many of the world’s major electronics companies fuel the demand for conflict minerals. As Sasha Lezhnev of the Enough Project explains in the podcast, ‘There are many things that consumers can do to influence these companies, and whether these companies move the needle on this issue is really up to us.’
The greater the pressure from consumers, the more likely we are to make a real difference. By sharing this podcast on Facebook, Twitter and email, you will help educate consumers and inspire them to join you in taking action.
Yours in solidarity,
Amy, Kate, Debra, Mich, Jess, Nick and the Walk Free team
