Last month, on September 19th, Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College hosted an evening with Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and Medical Director of Panzi Hospital, Dr. Denis Mukwege and Tony Award-winning playwright, founder of V-Day, and One Billion Rising, V (formerly Eve Ensler). The conversation ranged from the destruction of the Congolese forest through the extraction of petrol to the Mapping Report by the UN which lists 617 cases of crimes against humanity which have gone unpunished. Through this inspiring dialogue, Dr. Mukwege paints a vision of a better future for the Congo, one where soldiers become farmers and there is a strong system of justice. You can watch their powerful conversation below.
