Lobbyists 4 Good, the nation's first nonprofit that hires lobbyists on behalf of the American people, announced today that it has hired former Representative Steve Driehaus as a lobbyist.
Mr. Driehaus, who served as a Member of Congress from Ohio's 1st Congressional District, will lobby Congress to pressure the African nation of Mauritania to end protection for perpetrators of ethnic cleansing campaigns against black Africans from 1989 to 1992 and restore citizenship for thousands of Mauritanians. Many of Driehaus's former constituents are of Mauritania descent and their families came to the U.S. to escape the violence and severe human rights violations by the Mauritania government. The campaign was created on Lobbyists 4 Good's platform after the community had already met with Driehaus to ask his help lobbying Congress.
