Robin Wright has made an indelible mark in Hollywood, from her unforgettable early role as Jenny in the Oscar-winning Forrest Gump, to more recent television-starring portrayals on House of Cards with Kevin Spacey. House of Cards earned her a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series this year.
For the past six years, Wright has passionately dedicated herself to bold action for peace in eastern Congo, home to the world’s deadliest war. She joined the Enough Project’s Raise Hope for Congo campaign to demand conflict-free electronics and jewelry, and has published pieces calling on the Obama Administration to support a comprehensive peace process. Wright has visited eastern Congo and supports the work of local Congolese community organizations benefiting women and youth.
