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 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!
