- Advocates in Action
This story was just too great to keep to ourselves.
In the past two weeks, we’ve received a flood of sign-ups from young people across the United States — and beyond — eager to meet with their policy-makers to urge them to help bring Joseph Kony to justice and end LRA violence. It’s been exciting and encouraging for us to hear from so many young people ready and willing to engage politically on this issue because they are serious about pursuing an end to LRA violence.
This morning, we received a lobby meeting sign-up from a 21-year-old citizen of Tunisia — the nation credited with catalyzing the Arab Spring. Under “lobbying experience,” he submitted the following information:
“We managed to kick out our previous president.”
Needless to say, we are humbled — and pretty darn pumped — by the advocates we get to work with.
Sign up to lead a lobby meeting today. You’ll be in good company.
