Our pals Koji (Colormake) and Brian (Resolve) have come together to make some noise. They have organized a video postcard campaign to members of Congress urging them to support funding the LRA strategy to protect communities in central Africa from the Lord’s Resistance Army.

What does this mean? There are people in congress who have the power to bring more healing and hope to central Africa. They want them to know there are people who care. You can be one of those people.

What can you do? Create a short video. Include the following: 1. Introduce yourself, and thank them for the work that they’ve already done on this issue. This bill was unanimously passed, and that’s awesome! Thank them for supporting in the past. 2. Share your story, why it’s important to you that they take action. 3. Ask them to do everything in their power to make sure this strategy gets funded!

It’s important we act fast. You can check out the progress of this awesome project here. Follow along with Brian and Koji’s adventures on the Resolve Tour blog here.

Together, we’re louder.

    Want to help? Here’s even more info:

    Post your video as a video response to theirs on YouTube, so that when they Google themselves [WHICH THEY DO!], they’ll see a whole network of connected videos, asking them to fund the strategy.
