“Knock Knock” on Your Congressperson’s Door

“Knock Knock” on Your Congressperson’s Door

From April 6-17, our partners at Resolve Uganda are hosting their second “Knock Knock” campaign and encouraging YOU to bring solutions to ending LRA violence to dozens of Congressional front doors—literally. While the U.S. Congress is on recess, RU’s activist constituency will meet with their representatives and senators across the country on their home turf and express concerns over the ongoing violence committed by the Lord’s Resistance Army, or LRA, in central Africa.

Resolve Uganda and their lobbyists will express three key requests to each Congressperson and Congressional office:

1. COMMIT to co-sponsor upcoming bipartisan legislation that will develop a comprehensive strategy on how to rescue LRA captives, ensure LRA leaders are brought to justice, and support reconstruction efforts of communities affected by LRA violence.
2. CALL Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and urge her to appoint an Envoy for Africa’s Great Lakes region.
3. WRITE a Congressional resolution and letters to Administration officials to bring attention to this urgent issue of LRA violence.

Although the initial registration period has ended, it is not too late to join existing “Knock Knock” delegations. For more information, visit or email Alison Jones at [email protected].
