The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), led by ICC-indictee Joseph Kony, has been allowed to commit horrific acts of violence against hundreds of thousands of civilians in central and East Africa for nearly 30 years. The current resolutions, one in the Senate and one in the House of Representatives condemn Kony and the LRA and support ongoing efforts by the United States Government, the African Union, and governments and regional organizations in central Africa to remove Joseph Kony and Lord's Resistance Army commanders from the battlefield and promote protection and recovery of affected communities.
