In just under three weeks, thousands of concerned citizens will descend onto Washington, D.C., to call on their elected officials – in one strong, collective voice – to finally bring an end to the decades-long reign of terror perpetrated by the Lord’s Resistance Army in central Africa. Enough is teaming up with Invisible Children and Resolve Uganda to organize what could be, with your help, one of the biggest days of lobbying on Capitol Hill.
During the two-day event, activists from around the United States will learn from leading experts, prominent activists, and high-ranking U.S. government officials about how to resolve the conflict in central Africa. On the second day, armed with this knowledge and collective resolve, activists will fan out across Capitol Hill to knock on the door of all 535 members of congress and push them to help stop the LRA’s brutal leader, Joseph Kony, and restore peace to the region.
