KONY 2012 Invisible Children Movement Does Fashion for a Cause

If you have not seen this video yet, please take 30 minutes to watch this and let it sink in.

KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice. 

Since 1987, Joseph Kony has abducted more than 30,000 children in Central Africa and forced them to be child soldiers in his Lord’s Resistance Army. The KONY 2012 campaign employs film, social media, street art, and face-to-face interaction to make the case that the arrest of Joseph Kony this year is one thing we can all agree on. 

Invisble Children is an amazing Cause I have been following for years now. What started out as a group of college kids going to Africa with some film equipment has blossomed into a powerful and compelling movement. 

They have put out a line of T-shirts to make Kony a known person so he can be stopped.


"As a non-profit we work to transform apathy into activism. By documenting the lives of those living in regions of conflict and injustice, we hope to educate and inspire individuals in the Western world to use their unique voice for change. Our media creates an opportunity for people to become part of a grassroots movement that intelligently responds to what is happening in the world.
But our work extends beyond our borders. In war-affected regions we focus on long-term development, working directly with individuals and institutions that are eager to realize their full potential. Through education and innovative economic opportunities, we partner with affected communities and strive to improve the quality of life for individuals living in conflict and post-conflict regions.

1. End the war in northern Uganda and change the lives of thousands in the region through education and economic opportunities.
2. Inspire youth culture to value creativity, idealism and sacrifice by becoming a part of the movement of advocacy and awareness.
3. Connect people to the war-affected children in northern Uganda through compelling stories and revolutionary programs."
