Stop Kony

There's a person whose existence has been shrouded by invisibility and held in ignorance by the vast majority of the world except by those directly impacted by this man: Joseph Kony. Kony is one of the world's most horrific war criminals out of Uganda, abducting children to fuel and feed his army, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Boys are forced to become LRA soldiers and girls are held captive and raped. Most horrific of all? Kony has been committing these crimes against humanity for more than twenty years and has only recently caused a bleep on the world's radar of moral consciousness.

I admit that I am one of millions who did not know who Kony was and what he represented. But that has changed thanks to the Invisible Children's campaign to raise awareness and bring Kony to justice.

I will do my part and raise awareness about this cause. I pledge to stop Kony and become one of many taking action to make this world a better place.

Visit and take the pledge to stop Kony!
