Aaron Rodgers speaks at Amnesty International Rally at UW
QB discussing war torn Congo
MADISON- There was a big University of Wisconsin welcome Monday night for Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers MVP visited campus to discuss problems in the war torn Congo and the American connection to the problems, specifically conflict minerals.
Those minerals are used to make electronics and are in high demand and many times fall into the hands of the wrong people through blood shed.
The rally was part of UW Madison's conflict free campus initiative. It's a call for electronics companies to use conflict free minerals.
Some 150 universities and colleges are taking part with the goal of having all electronics on campus made with conflict free minerals.
