Start Something to Finish It

Demand Funding for Obama's LRA Strategy

We passed a bill. We got a strategy. Now, we fight to fund it.

Almost one year ago, Members of Congress unanimously passed the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act. This law required President Obama to create a strategy to help end LRA violence and rebuild affected communities. But now, the hope of seeing this plan translate into concrete action that can save lives and end the LRA’s abductions and atrocities permanently is in jeopardy. After passing historic legislation to address this crisis, Congress is threatening to cut the money needed to implement the LRA strategy from the U.S. budget.

Start Something to Finish It is a campaign in partnership with Resolve, Invisible Children, and Enough.

Dear Members of Congress:

Your action is critical to help the children and families in central Africa who are vulnerable to violence and abduction by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Last May, you passed legislation requiring the President to devise a strategy to address this crisis. Now, you must fund that strategy for it to have a concrete impact for people being targeted by the LRA.

As you consider our country's budget priorities for the coming year, please ensure resources are available to help rescue these children and end LRA violence permanently.
