An eye witness to the effects of human rights violations against children in Uganda will tell his personal story at Brookdale Community College on Monday, Oct. 28. The talk will follow a screening of the film “Invisible Children” from 7 to 9 pm in the Navesink Room of the Warner Student Life Center on the Lincroft Campus. The talk is sponsored by the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education (cchange).
The mission of the Invisible Children organization is to bring about the permanent end to the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Led by Joseph Kony and known for its brutality, the LRA has been accused of horrific human rights violations including murder, abduction, child-sex slavery and the forcing children to become child soldiers. Merchandise from the Invisible Children organization will be available for purchase to help support the cause. Items include bags, scarves, t-shirts and jewelry.
