On December 6, 2013, 19 members of Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army peacefully surrendered. We were on the ground to welcome them home.

Since 2005, the LRA has been poaching elephants in Garamba National Park and using the elephants’ ivory to fund their operations and continue killing innocent civilians in central Africa. Through defection flier messaging, we are directly targeting groups in the park, asking them to lay down their arms and peacefully surrender. 79% of defectors in the past year have cited these fliers as influential in their escape.

Where has Joseph Kony been hiding?

[ read the detailed report ]



Yesterday, we asked our supporters to reach out to the U.S. State Department to remain committed to counter-LRA operations in light of recent events in the Central African Republic. Today, Donald Yamamoto and the State Dept. reaffirmed their commitment.

Now our sights are set on the African Union for them to continue their counter-LRA efforts and ensure that civilians remain protected. Act now: http://spr.ly/Tweet_AU

It is with great consternation that we learned US and UPDF security forces in Obo, Haut-Mbomou CAR must leave the prefecture of Haut-Mbomou. No one here ignores the intrinsic value of the support these two forces provide in the fight against the LRA rebels of Joseph Kony.


From the depth of our hearts, women from Haut-Mbomou oppose themselves to this precipitated departure, as it will lead to sexual abuse on girls and women, and to them becoming porters.

Ten local civil society groups in CAR issued statements urging the US and Ugandan governments to stay committed to protecting civilians from LRA violence. Help amplify these local voices so that they aren’t ignored.
TAKE ACTION NOW.

Decisions are being made right now regarding the continuation of counter-LRA operations. Tweet Secretary of State John Kerry to remind him of commitments the U.S. has already made to end LRA violence and protect civilians. http://spr.ly/remindkerry
