Good news from the Invisible Children!
As big of a splash that KONY 2012 made, the hype has died down and the attention given to the Invisible Children has certainly decreased, but what you have to remember is this:
Invisible Children has been fighting for this before and after KONY 2012.
This is their cause, this is their passion. What the future of Invisible Children is after KONY is captured or dies is of no importance right now, it’s stopping the madness that KONY ignites around Africa.
Thank God for organizations like this.
Organizations that keep at it.
Organizations that don’t give up.
And they’re starting to see some results!
This from the Invisible Children website:
As you may recall, on November 16, 2012 — just one day before thousands marched on Washington for MOVE:DC — more than 700 of Invisible Children’s top activists met with their members of Congress and urged them to take action to help end LRA violence and bring Joseph Kony to justice. One of the main things activists demanded was for Congress to pass the Rewards for Justice expansion bill (S.2318), legislation that would strengthen efforts to locate and arrest Kony by enabling the U.S. State Department to offer financial rewards for information that directly leads to his arrest (for more details about the bill, visit here).
Now, thanks to your efforts, the bill is on it’s way to President Obama’s desk to be signed into law. Once passed, it could result in valuable new information about Kony’s location and movements, bringing us closer to his arrest. It also has the potential to encourage LRA fighters and lower level commanders to defect, which would severely weaken the LRA’s ability to commit violence against communities in central Africa.
Another #WIN for the Invisible Children. Another #WIN for justice.
