Affleck is a passionate advocate who travels the world to gain a deeper understanding of the complexity of issues facing Africa today. In the last year alone, he has made four separate trips to numerous countries on the African continent, with a focus on the Great Lakes region. Affleck has focused on understanding the causes and consequences of conflict in Africa, along with learning specifically about African solutions to the problems affecting the Great Lakes region and Horn of Africa.

Most recently, Affleck traveled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where he directed the short film and public service announcement Gimme Shelter, which focused on the humanitarian crisis in that area. In partnership with the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, this film is part of the international campaign to aid those displaced by violence.
