TEDxSanDiego 2011 - Jason Russell - Joseph Kony 2012

Jason Russell co-founded Invisible Children after a visit to Uganda in 2003. Their goal is to mobilize people to end the 26-year reign of terror of Joseph Kony and free the child soldiers of the LRA. He is launching "Joseph Kony 2012." They are targeting 20 of the most influential people around the world to help. They want to have a presence at every event of the 2012 U.S. presidential campaign, until Joseph Kony is brought to justice at the International Criminal Court. Invisible Children's latest accomplishment was to get the U.S. to send a small contingent of troops to Uganda in November 2011.
