The Open Society Policy Center, along with nearly two dozen other human rights, development, and humanitarian NGOs recently thanked Senator Russ Feingold for his commitment and dedication to Africa while serving in the United States Senate.
During his tenure as chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Feingold demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to promoting human rights in Africa by tackling such issues as the Lord’s Resistance Army, conflict minerals, and civil society freedom. He championed the cause of human rights and democracy in Africa by calling hearings to examine these often overlooked issues, publicly spoke out against injustices, and sponsored many important pieces of legislation that will have long-lasting impact throughout the continent.
