We’ve made truly remarkable progress toward ending the violence of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), but our work is not done yet. Joseph Kony remains at large and LRA violence has actually increased over the past year. Thankfully, our allies in Congress recently introduced the LRA Resolution, calling on President Obama to stay the course until LRA violence finally ends. And because of your voices, more members of Congress are joining in with their support.

The bipartisan LRA Resolution (H.Res. 394 / S.Res. 237) calls on President Obama and other international leaders to remain committed to seeing a permanent end to LRA violence, bringing Joseph Kony to justice, and supporting the lasting recovery of LRA-affected communities in central and East Africa.

Below is a list of the members of Congress who championed the Resolution and who responded to your dedicated advocacy by signing on as cosponsors. In other words: NICE WORK! We’ll continue to update this blog as the list of cosponsors grows, in response to your voices. If you see your member of Congress listed below, be sure to send them a quick “thank you” message on Twitter.
