About this series
KONY 2012 is part of a unique social media campaign created by Invisible Children about Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Uganda. Kony and the LRA have used systematic and brutal violence in their quest to create a theocratic state in East Africa. However, what really has people riled up is Kony’s use of child soldiers in his army. An estimated 66,000 children have been abducted by the LRA and forced to fight, sometimes against their own families and communities.
