Use Your Influence to Protect Human Rights

Historically, the Human Rights Council has been controlled by human rights abusers. But since the United States joined last year, it has already influenced more countries to stand up against nations that torture and imprison political opponents and conduct public executions.  Tell the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations to continue to use U.S. influence on the Council to protect and promote human rights.

Keep Informed

According to Invisible Children: "For 23 years, the government of Uganda and a rebel group called the Lords Resistance Army [LRA], led by a man named Joseph Kony, has engaged in Africa's longest war. In recent years, peace was seemingly within reach, largely due to the Juba Peace Talks that began in July 2006. However, despite a ceasefire signed between the LRA and Ugandan government, efforts toward peace through the Juba Peace Talks were stalled on several occasions by Kony's refusal to sign the final peace agreement....Joseph Kony is the world's first individual indicted by the International Criminal Court [ICC] for crimes against humanity. Since September 2008, hostility in the Orientale province in DR Congo and Western Equatoria in South Sudan has reached a feverish pitch. In apparent desperation and a renewed will to spread terror to DR Congo, the LRA murdered over six hundred and abducted more than one hundred and sixty children to fight amongst its ranks. More than 104,000 Congolese have been displaced since Christmas in attempts to escape the LRA forces....Invisible Children...now believes an international effort to apprehend Kony and rescue his child soldiers is the most viable way to end the most neglected humanitarian emergency in the world today."
