Video Highlights from Resolve’s DC Vigil
The Resolve team gathered with a handful of local activists in front of the White House on Tuesday to usher in the One Voice: Resolved to Remember campaign. We were humbled by the people who came to join us – in the freezing cold – for our vigil to remember the lives lost in the LRA Christmas massacres. It was a powerful time of honoring those who lost their lives and the memories of all who have been affected by LRA violence.
Each of us picked the name of one person from a list of those killed or abducted. For many of us, the process of connecting with one name and the life it represented was a sobering reminder of the reality people in these communities continue to face.
Several of us shared our personal stories of why we were there. We will be posting some of these thoughts in the days ahead. In the meantime, this video gives a sense of our experience on Tuesday.

We invite you to join us in remembering by having your own vigil – individually or in a group. Find out more.
