KONY 2012

If you haven’t already heard about this, you NEED to watch this video for KONY 2012. This movement is based on the idea that PEOPLE have the power to change the world. Thanks to social media, the creators of Invisible Children were able to connect with people around the world to influence the American government to help stop the man who leads an army to murder, mutilate, and rape Ugandan citizens - Joseph Kony. But guess what? Despite being the world’s most dangerous war criminal, the world does not even know who Kony is.
The KONY 2012 video was uploaded to YouTube on March 5th, and since March 9th, it has earned about 60 million views on YouTube. The message of this video is inspiring – that we can all make a difference. Even as interns, we have the power to change the world.
