Students join Global Night Commute
WILMORE, KY—More than 100 Asbury College students will be joining the Global Night Commute and Invisible Children, Inc. on April 29 at 7 p.m. at Triangle Park in downtown Lexington, Ky. The Global Night Commute is taking place is dozens of cities across the nation and around the world to raise awareness of and advocate for the plight of the children in Northern Uganda.
Every night for 20 years, thousands of children in Northern Uganda have commuted to sleep in the center of their cities for fear of abduction by rebel soldiers and being forced to fight in a violent army. “Invisible Children” and the Global Night Commute hope to bring awareness to this issue and encourage the U.S. government to take a stand.
Volunteers will mimic the commute and sleep in downtown Lexington. They will also be involved in letter writing campaigns and art projects to be sent to government leaders.
Invisible Children Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial resources to invisible children by documenting their true, untold stories in a creative and relevant way, resulting in positive change. For more information visit, Invisible Children.
