Please sign the followingIn northern Uganda, more than 25,000 children have been kidnapped and forced to serve as soldiers in a nightmarish civil war that the world has largely ignored. These innocent children are brutalized and mutilated, forced to commit atrocities, and given as sex slaves to military commanders. This targeted abuse of children is unacceptable.
As parents, people of faith, students and youth, we urge all parties involved in this conflict to find a peaceful resolution. We implore the United States government, the United Nations, and the international community to work diligently to bring peace and protection to the children of northern Uganda. All children deserve to have a childhood free from torture and a future free from cruelty.
"No Child Soldiers" Declaration
Our goal is peace for the children of northern Uganda — and 100,000 signatures.
Once the signatures are collected, we'll take the Declaration to the Bush Administration, Congress, and the UN to demand action. We’ll coordinate focused events with the press and with concerned individuals like you.
