The L.R.A. (Lord’s Resistance Army) with it’s ruthless leader Joesph Kony, have allegedly abducted, raped, and mutilated over 30,000 men, women and children in Africa over the course of 26 years.

“For 26 years Kony has been kidnapping children into his rebel group, the L.R.A. turning the girls into sex slaves, and the boys into child soldiers. He makes them mutilate peoples face and he forces them to kill their own parents.” said Jason Russell.

The International Criminal Court has placed Joesph Kony as number one in their indictment list of war lords and other criminals against humanity. The I.C.C. are determined to bring Joesph Kony to Justice. Jason Russell co-founded the Invisible Children Inc. in 2005 to bring awareness and action upon the inhumane events that were occurring in Ugandan because of the L.R.A.

“They built a community around the idea that where you live shouldn’t determine whether you live.” Jason Russell, filmmaker and activist.

With their time, effort, and money Invisible Children Inc. rebuilt schools, created jobs, and built an early warning radio network on the front line of the war to protect villages from rebel attacks. With a few dollars a month donated to a program called T.R.I. the world became aware of Africa’s “Invisible Children”. With the success of the program and the impact it had Invisible Children Inc marched to Washington DC, once again to bring Kony to justice.

“These young members of the Invisible Children Organization know that no child should live in fear of being abducted and killed,” said Representaive Susan Davis.

At first the United States government and other representatives stated that they would never get involved in a conflict where our national security or financial interests are not at stake. With all the efforts of Invisible Children Inc. and the youth of U.S. their 8 year journey had taken a tremendous stride towards justice when in Oct. 14, 2011 President Barack Obama authorized to deploy 100 American advisers to central Africa to assist the Ugandian government.

This mission will be canceled if the US government thinks that Americans do not care about arresting Kony. So in their latest efforts Invisible Children Inc. has devised a plan to make Joesph Kony a house hold name, not to celebrate him but to bring his crimes to the light. Their plan is make the world aware of what’s going on with the L.R.A. They will be targeting 20 culture makers and 12 policy makers.

“Celebrities, Athletes, and Billionaires have a loud voice, and what they talk about spreads instantly.” said Jason Russell.

On their website www.invisiblechildren.com they have made it easy to write, call, and meet the 12 policy makers that are crucial to spread awareness in the political world. In this year, 2012, Invisible Children Inc is focusing all their efforts to find and arrest Joesph Kony. Let the world know what he had done.
