Ben Affleck: Washington Post Op-Ed!

Ben Affleck shares his thoughts on how the U.S. can help secure Congo in a new op-ed for the Washington Post.

The 38-year-old actor wrote, “To secure the peace, we must continue to support local leaders and trust their ability to manage their own destiny. At the same time, we cannot refuse to recognize that the reinforcing cycle of poverty and corruption still rules and that many crimes are still committed with impunity. We need to also acknowledge that achieving stability within Congo’s borders requires understanding the dynamics outside those borders and throughout the Great Lakes region.”
