Power of Social Media

Have you seen the Kony 2012 short film? It has recorded over 86 million views on YouTube. The widespread exposure has taught many about the LRA and Joseph Kony, who have been abducting children for his army. The Invisible Children organization, who created this video, is initiating a global movement by effectively using powers of social media to inspire young people about this armed conflict in Africa.

Invisible Children uses film, creativity and social action to end the use of child soldiers in Joseph Kony's rebel war and restore LRA-affected communities in central Africa to peace and prosperity. Their goals don’t stop just with Kony. Invisible Children is trying to implement educational programs and economic initiatives in war affected region. The initiatives
include an attempt to meet region’s need for both stability and flexibility.

Listen up because you can help out too! You can take part in “Cover the Night” event on April 20th; there is an event taking place in almost every city. This increased exposure will help bring an end to LRA. So, register in your area today!

The Invisible Children will appreciate all the help. The media has been used for tabloids and negative reasons, but Invisible
Children have found a way to incorporate the positive powers of media by spreading word about these relatively unknown cruelties that have been going on for many years. Now, there is more knowledge about the child soldiers in Uganda and people are realizing that some people in the world are not provided basic rights. This message is crucial in realizing the magnitude of Joseph Kony’s actions.
