Since the beginning of 2011, Joseph Kony and the LRA have abducted 1,023 people in central Africa; 1,023 lives in the hands of this rebel army. In response, 16 teams will be traveling across the country (each with a Ugandan Roadie) on our Frontline Tour across the US and Canada. These roadie teams will raise money and awareness for our projects to directly protect people from LRA violence. Our event will include a screening of the latest documentary, followed by a Q&A session!

I, Too, Am UNI is a photo essay project that will depict the stories of students from under-represented groups who experience micro-aggressions on a regular basis at UNI. The inspiration for this event is the I, Too, Am Harvard project, which specifically focused on racial micro-aggressions. Students will have the opportunity to write their story or phrases on a dry erase board and will be photographed holding it. These photos will then be on display on the I, Too, Am UNI Tumblr and Facebook fan page.
