today's action Don't Open a UNESCO World Heritage Site to Oil Exploration!

Virunga National Park is a UNESCO world heritage site located in the Congo. It's the oldest and most biologically diverse park in the entire African continent.

However, over the past 20 years, armed conflict and poaching have endangered the site's ecosystem. Instead of taking action to protect the area's wildlife, prime minister Augustin Matata Ponyo has said he's open to explore for oil in the park. Now, big oil could destroy habitat that's home to dozens of engendered species, including the park's famous mountain gorillas. These gorillas aren't found anywhere else on the planet!

For today's Daily Action, urge the Congo's prime minister to choose the environment over big oil.

alternative action Let's Do Something About College Rape

One in four women will be sexually assaulted during her college experience and 3% of men experience rape or an attempted rape during their college career. It's staggering. What's even more staggering are the lengths colleges go to cover up these sexual assault crimes.

For today's Secondary Action, read about the new film "The Hunting Ground" that exposes the horrifying trend and how colleges are covering it up.
