So far 3,530,673 people from countries all over the globe have pledged support. The world is responding. Policymakers are starting to take a stand in support of ending LRA violence. In just the last two weeks, two bipartisan resolutions supporting the effort against the LRA have been introduced into the U.S. Congress. Together, the House resolution by Congressmen Royce and McGovern and the Senate resolution authored by Senators Coons and Inhofe, have already gained 88 bipartisan cosponsors. The UN also announced, together with the African Union, that the four LRA-affected countries would cooperate in a regional task force targeting the LRA. This is momentum that must be sustained.
This is an exciting time in history and our leaders need to know that we stand not just behind them, but beside them, in the fight to end LRA violence and rehabilitate abducted women and children.
