Now, thanks to your efforts, the bill is on its 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.
This week’s news is more proof that your persistent and bold advocacy is working. We want to offer huge thanks to everyone who participated in LOBBY:DC
— especially those who went the extra mile by leading
meetings. Your hard work and sacrifice to come to DC was worth it. We also want to thank the members of Congress who introduced this legislation into Congress, namely Representative Ed Royce (R-CA) in the House and Senators John Kerry (D-MA), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), John Boozman (R-AR), and Chris Coons (D-DE) in the Senate. Their leadership has been central to the progress made thus far.
