- From the Team
Last September, we partnered with Invisible Children to create and launch the LRA Crisis Tracker. Since then, we have been so encouraged by the positive feedback the tool has been receiving. Just to name a couple of examples — in November, our LRA Crisis Tracker team was invited to present at the International Conference of Crisis Mappers in Geneva, then in December, the Crisis Tracker won Best in Show at the Creative Media Awards.
More recently, we were notified that the Crisis Tracker has been accepted for consideration by TED’s Ads Worth Spreading challenge, which is in it’s second year and seeks to encourage creativity and innovation in advertising. While the winners are not chose solely on votes, it is a key component — which means you can help by watching this video, voting, and spreading the word. The more votes the Crisis Tracker gets, there greater the chances that it will win the challenge — so please take a minute to vote!
Regardless of the results, we’re hopeful that this competition brings the LRA Crisis Tracker — and the conflict as a whole — more needed attention.
