Check this Out - Northern Uganda Legislation

I just stumbled upon this bill that was passed last year, which basically says the U.S. is committed to aiding the situation in northern Uganda. This is great news in some ways because it means we have something to build upon, but also difficult news given that even with this legislation, the U.S. is basically doing nothing.

Also, look at this - http://72.14.207.104/search?q=cache:cRgPGmS9lq4J:www.usaid.or.ug/SO9%2520annexes/NUPIBrief-2004-11-19.pdf+Northern+Uganda+Peace+Initiative&hl=en - this is the Northern Uganda Peace Initiative, a project of USAID. I met with these guys in Uganda and they seemed to be pretty weak, but again they give us some foundation that we have to build upon and utilize.

This could be very helpful if we do something like a virtual march - we could focus on contacting the 8 senators who cosponsored this bill...
