Help request a Senate hearing on Uganda crisis

World Vision reports that Sen. James Inhofe is asking Sen. Mel Martinez, Chair of the Africa Subcommittee, to convene a Senate hearing on the northern Uganda crisis. Inhofe visited northern Uganda in April 2005 and toured World Vision's Children of War Rehabilitation Program in Gulu, which has helped nearly 14,000 formerly abducted children recover from their traumatic experiences in LRA captivity.

A Senate hearing is a significant step toward greater U.S. leadership to help end the 20-year war – and World Vision is making it easy for us to contact our representatives and ask them to request and support the hearing.
