Invisible Children Wants to Talk to the Ugandan Diaspora

Date:

Invisible Children has issued a statement calling for a meeting with Ugandan Diaspora tomorrow, March 31st. No doubt the agenda at said meeting is going to be about the controversy surrounding the recent viral success of the Kony 2012 Video. I think this is the least that the organization can do. Dialogue is always a good start. In hind sight, this probably should have happened prior to the release of the video, but I suppose, better to engage Ugandan now than than never.

The meeting notice is rather sudden and I am not sure how long the request has been out, but I am publishing this within the same hour as I received it. Nonetheless, if you do happen to be a Ugandan within driving distance of IC’s San Diego offices, please do make a point to get in touch with Sean Poole to make arrangements for attendance. Full announcement below:

Invisible Children would like to invite all members of the Ugandan diaspora to attend a meeting on Saturday, March 24th at 11am in San Diego where members of the Invisible Children team would like to listen to insight from the Ugandan diaspora and discuss the recent Kony 2012 campaign and its impact. Please RSVP to spoole@invisiblechildren.com so we can ensure their is sufficient space for all to participate. While we realize it is not possible for many members from across the US to participate in a meeting with such short notice, we would like this just to be the beginning of engagement with the diaspora on this issue.
