After a five year quest to get the attention of the United States government, we have done it.
President Obama agreed to a signing ceremony in the Oval Office for
the signing of the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act!
After the unbelievable rallying we all did to see this bill pass
unanimously through Congress, and the props they gave us on the House
floor (I’ll never forget that for the rest of my life), we have seen
impossible dreams come true.
After the bill’s unanimous passage, we asked the White House for a
signing ceremony with the President so that we could hold him
accountable to this mandate and see Joseph Kony arrested.
On Saturday, President Obama accepted our request and invited us to the Oval Office on Monday.
Today, Monday, May 24th at 5pm est, Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton, Members of Congress, UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Jason, Laren,
Ben Keesey and Resolve’s Michael Poffenberger stood in the Oval Office,
circled around President Barack Obama as he signed into law the bill we
have carried so far.
