Star power came together on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to raise awareness about the Congo.
Emmanuelle Chriqui, an actress from the TV show Entourage, and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers were at the Memorial Union Terrace on Monday night thanks to The Enough Project and UW's student chapter of the Conflict Free Campus Initiative.
Their goal is to bring peace in Congo where blood diamonds help fund brutal wars and children are often kidnapped and trained as soldiers.
Rodgers spoke about how students can urge companies that make the electronics they use often, like cellphone, to use materials that do not come from conflict zones.
"We can say to those tech companies and those people, we want to live in a world where our electronics do not fund rape and war," Rodgers said.
The Conflict Free Campus Initiative is currently on more than 150 college campuses across the country.
