The resolution urging U.S. support for the peace talks aimed at ending the war in northern Uganda finally passed in the House!

The resolution urges the Government of Uganda and LRA to commit to finding a political solution to end the war and also calls upon the U.S. and international community to provide “immediate and substantial support” to the ongoing peace talks.

The bill (H.Con.Res.80) was originally introduced a few months ago and had been stuck in committee until last week. Many of you took part in our campaign at the beginning of the spring to get support for this resolution and are the reason why it passed yesterday with over 30 cosponsors.

Momentum is building, so way to go!

A similar version of this resolution passed through the Senate in March.
