- Advocates in Action
Two days ago, we joined our partners at Invisible Children for the launch of KONY 2012, a campaign to make Joseph Kony’s crimes known to the world. Since then, the campaign has gone viral, and millions of people are newly inspired to help. Our office has been flooded.
But the campaign will fail if we stop there. To see Joseph Kony arrested and the end of LRA atrocities, we have to harness this energy. We have to translate it into new momentum in order to move our leaders to take the steps needed to see Kony arrested and the LRA’s history of atrocities finally ended. For too long, communities across central Africa have endured LRA attacks without an adequate response from the rest of the world.
Now we can change that. Show your commitment to that goal by signing up — right now — to meet with your Member of Congress, right in your local community.
It’s been almost two years since Congress passed the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act. Since then, real progress has been made, and we have a window of opportunity like never before to push our leaders to take action that could help finally end this conflict once and for all. But they need to hear from you personally.
Our Resolve team will work side-by-side with you to help you organize and prepare for your meeting. Your job is to urge your representative to join you – and million of other advocates — in your commitment to help end LRA violence before the year is out.
Make it happen, people. Sign up today.
