#Yellowsunday

Join Congolese civilians worldwide for Yellow Sunday on June 19, 2016. Together we will stand in solidarity to increase public awareness of the ongoing atrocities in Beni and throughout Congo, and mobilize support for those fighting for peace and justice. 

In Congolese traditions, yellow symbolizes wealth. Congo’s greatest wealth is its people, who struggle under violence, corruption, and poverty. Join our effort by wearing yellow on Sunday, June 19; take a picture of yourself, your friends, your families, your church and community wearing yellow and post it on social media using hashtag #YellowSunday #DimancheJaune #JeSuisBeni #Congo.

Feel free to use the graphics below to aid your efforts!
