Proud of SNU Student Joint Initiative Toward Eupan

Several students committed to extend good to others are partnering with other persons from around the State and around the U.S. to encourage Tom Coburn (R-Muskogee, OK) to remove his hold on a Bill in Congress.

If Coburn will remove his hold on the bill - based on current support in the Senate - it will pass and will allow for millions of dollars for humanitarian relief and reconstruction, reconciliation, and transitional justice to aid Uganda.

Support for the measures have grown over a number of years through concentrated awareness campaigns by several agencies regarding the Child Soldiers that are largely kidnapped and forced/drugged into becoming murderers.

Read more about what local Oklahomans are doing right now.

Read more about the Bill.

Read more about a single agency Resolve Uganda or another single agency, Invisible Children, that has been working toward this issue of injustice in our world for years.

And, to the students I have had the privilege to work with - who fall within the broad range of connected Eupan Global Inititiave ideas and inspiration . . . I am very proud of you!

A solid example of long-term political advocacy and political will building in the making - and effecting good for those who need it!

Toward eupan!
