Cover the Night: Kony 2012

If you are not among the 100 million-plus people who have viewed the viral video “Kony 2012,” or seen the face of the Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony on the cover of TIME magazine or on national news segments in the past month, then perhaps you just emerged from hibernation. “Kony 2012” is an international campaign led by the nonprofit organization Invisible Children, in an effort to make Joseph Kony—leader of the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army)—and his atrocities a household name. The goal of this grass-roots movement is to make Joseph Kony (in)famous enough to finally be captured and tried for his crimes against children and humanity.

On April 20, people around the world are joining together to “cover the night.” Posters will be hung, billboards will line streets and supporters will wear T-shirts, bracelets and buttons to educate their communities in hopes of sending a message to Washington to put forth additional effort to apprehend a man who has eluded capture for more than two decades.
