War survivor visits to raise awareness The Feather River College Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) program will host the nonprofit Invisible Children's "KONY 2012" campaign to raise awareness about Joseph Kony, a man who has abduct- ed over 30,000 children in Central Africa. Akello Patricia is one of 16 Ugandans showing Invisible Children's newest film, "KONY 2012," around the country. Each Ugandan has lived through a brutal con- flict in Uganda and is now ad- vocating on behalf of the three countries that are still terrorized by Joseph Kony's rebel force, the Lord's Resis- tance Army (LRA). This event was organized by Gina Rangel, president of the SIFE team at Feather Riv- er College, who invited Invisi- ble Children's representa- tives to talk about the atroci- ties that have been happening in Central Africa for more than 26 years. Patricia is touring northern California. She was born in northern Uganda at the height of the conflict and lost many of her relatives to Joseph Kony and the LRA. Patricia is a recent college graduate and was part of In- visible Children's scholarship program in Uganda. The screening will take place at 7 p.m. Monday, March 19, at the Townhall Theatre in Quincy.

Invisible Children is en- couraging students to use so- cial media to engage influen- tial culture makers and poli- cymakers during "KONY 2012." Students will also be en- couraged to set up or attend meetings with their members of Congress. Invisible Chil- dren believes that whether Republican or Democrat, whether Lady Gaga or Tim Tebow, arresting the woHd's worst war criminal is some- thing we can all agree on. "There has been significant progress in the recent months towards stopping the violence of the LRA," said Invisible Children's CEO, Ben Keesey. "ffthe world continues to ral- ly behind this effort, 2012 will be the year that peace is finany achieved, once and for all." This is Invisible Children's 14th national tour.
