Lisa Shannon for the Congo

Lisa Shannon has been working since 2005 to stop the horrific rapes and torture that happens to the people of Congo everyday. Her talk was about what she has done, where she has been. the people she has met and the storie she has been able to share. It was a popular event on campus because of the current change that is going on. The SMC for DRC organization had become a sanctioned St. Michael’s College club. This is a club that is dedicated to doing exactly what Lisa has been doing. Also, this event is one of many on this topic to happen on campus and it has been a crowd gathering topic in the past.
