Congo discussion begins at 3:00. Viewer discretion advised.

In the segment, Wright explains she "got involved in this cause because the minerals that are in our gadgets that we use everyday-- our iPhones, our toasters, our computers-- have [minerals] that come from the Congo and every 48 minutes a woman is being raped in and around these mines."

Wright encourages viewers to speak up for the people of eastern Congo and pressure Apple to make a product with conflict-free minerals.

This past summer, Wright traveled to eastern Congo with the Enough Project's Raise Hope for Congo team. Read her trip diary here.
