The Break the Silence Speakers Tour is an outgrowth of Congo Week. It serves the purpose of following-up to the week of activities and continuing the momentum of building a global movement in support of the Congo.
The Speakers Tour is a multi-city tour throughout the United States, Canada and select countries throughout the globe. In its second year the Speakers Tour occurs each Spring from February 1 to July 2nd (Birthday of Patrice Lumumba and Commemorative date of Kimpa Vita).
