Why We Need to Stop Joseph Kony // Uganda staff responds

From the staff // What we’re reading this summer

Summer is the time for backyard barbecues, sandy shoes, outdoor games, the perfect playlist, and a good book.

We can’t pass up an opportunity to hang […]

“Stand on the shoulders of giants.” It’s Google Scholar’s slogan, but it could just as easily be ours. The work we’ve done and continue to do is only possible because of others who have come before us. The United Nations designated August 19th as World Humanitarian Day.

No capes required // Our heroes in Congress

It’s Comic-Con weekend here in San Diego, and we’re seeing an increasing amount of Justice League costumes on the drive to work. So, we thought we would take the chance to recognize some real-life superheroes. This month, Representatives Jim McGovern (D-MA) and Ed Royce (R-CA) gained some major brownie points in our book.

As we work to protect communities from the violence of Joseph Kony’s rebel army, Ugandan and United States military forces are leading efforts to find him once and for all. But the man we made famous in 2012 is still eluding capture. Though he is thought to be hiding in Kafia Kingi, recent defectors admit that they have not had […]
