Leverage politics is an effective strategy to bring awareness about the situation in Congo. The Enough Project is using this strategy by calling on celebrities to influence the media and bring attention to the public about the unfair trade practices involving conflict minerals. This approach has been successful because more celebrities are willing to use their star power for a good cause and work with different organizations to help bring attention to these issues.
