We always planned for our events to “bring it all together”. They simultaneously educated our supporters, while engaging political and cultural leaders — ultimately uniting people around the shared goal of permanently ending the LRA crisis . Through strength in numbers and power in creative action, we galvanized unprecedented attention to the LRA conflict and inspired action that changed culture, policy, and lives.
See how young people around the world have rallied together in the past to bring attention to the LRA conflict.
