For years, we as a Judge community, have been hearing all about the Invisible Children Campaign going on in Northern Uganda. Many of us have been compelled to do something to aid them in their noble goal to bring peace to war-torn Acholi people. Whether it was buying a bracelet after watching one of the Invisible Children movies at school, or buying DVDs or contributing to the Schools for Schools fund for free dress.
The Invisible Children Movement The work we do in Uganda is only part of the story. As a non-profit organization, we believe changing perceptions and lives in the Western world is just as important as changing lives in war-torn regions. We know that in order to realize greater change people must do more than empathize; they must be compelled to act. The Movement side of the company exists to creatively share the story of the invisible children, ultimately empowering a new generation of leaders to take an active role in pursuing peace and social justice. To this end, our Movement team works hand-in-hand with our Mission department to raise international awareness, ultimately bring greater aid and more permanent change to war-affected regions.
You may also know that during the debut of this year's movie, "GO", anyone who bought "GO", had a chance of winning a ticket to go to Uganda with Invisible Children this summer. Our very own Sophomore, Emily Burchett, was that lucky winner, and will be traveling to Washington D.C. and Uganda this summer. Knowing her personally many of her friends have felt even more compelled to work with Invisible Children's efforts towards peace and reconstruction.

This weekend there will be a "Rescue Rally" to get the Media and Mogul's attention and help to bring peace to the longest running war in Africa. Participants will "Abduct" themselves and walk from the university, down to the Galavin Center, where they will wait for important figures in Utah, as well as media come to rescue them.
