BWC, FCNL Laud Passage of House Resolution in Support of the Central African Republic


On March 3, the House overwhelmingly adopted H.Res. 387 by a margin of 378 to 7, a clear sign of support for the Central African Republic (CAR).

The resolution condemns armed groups’ role in ongoing violence against civilians in CAR and supports efforts to achieve a lasting political solution to the conflict, building on a peace agreement signed last year in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum. It comes two weeks after clashes in the northeast left more than a dozen dead.

The Better World Campaign, along with the Friends Council on National Legislation and Search for Common Ground, issued a statement in support of this resolution.
