A new world – Kony2012


>

North America was first introduced to the “Invisible children” of Uganda almost a decade ago through the three American college age students that stumbled into one of the world’s most hidden injustices. Over 30,000 children had been kidnapped and trained to fight for the Rebel Army called the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) in Northern Uganda.

While their grassroots efforts around the world resulted in the stoppage of child soldiers in Uganda, Joseph Kony and the LRA fled to surrounding nations in Africa and continue their crimes against children.

As of Fall 2011 the U.S. government has deployed a 100 American military advisors to the region to help these African nations capture Joseph Kony. These same 3 young Americans, led by Jason Russell, have continued to fight this fight and have now launched a new campaign for 2012 to end this war.

Watch one of the most moving and inspiring 29 minute documentary’s, that engages present day injustice, that you may ever see! It is worth every minute of your time…Jason Russell catalyzes a global vision for a global generation in a time where the grassroots can lead change in the place of power!

The world premier of this online launch Kony2012 was March 5th, 2012 and the campaign launch is April 20th, 2012. While we gather on April 20th -22nd in Calgary for the blueporch collective we will be able to take part in the street launch of this campaign! How exciting!
