The Enough Project is a Washington, D.C. based non-profit organization that was founded in 2007. The project was co-founded by the Center for American Progress and the International Crisis Group in 2007.[1] Its stated mission is to end genocide and crimes against humanity. The Enough Project conducts research in several conflict areas in Africa including Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, and the areas controlled by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).[2] The Enough Project facilitates several campaigns and initiatives which work to bring attention to these crises, including the RAISE Hope for Congo campaign, Darfur Dream Team, and the Satellite Sentinel Project.[3] Its co-founders are John Prendergast and Gayle Smith.[4]

In 2014 Project Enough released a report on war lordism and the mines of the Congo. The report indicated that due to the economic pressure of a provision of the United States Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, which required any company that might be using "conflict minerals" to register with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and publish their supply chain, control over the mines had passed out of the hands of the warlords and local militias.[5]
