My name is Angela and I am the Public Relations Officer for the New Paltz chapter of Invisible Children. I’m hoping to use this blog as a way to update you on everything Invisible Children. We had our first club meeting on Sept. 24 and came up with a bunch of new ideas for fundraisers and club events. One of our e-board members also gave us a brief history of the war, the organization, and updated us on the initiatives being taken by the people in Africa who have been affected by the war, and people like you and me to help stop it. There are some great videos and useful information on the prezi so please take a look!
P.S- Our club meetings are held on Mondays at 7 p.m. in SUB 405.
The Roadies are also stopping by on Oct. 10 and are bringing Richard, a Ugandan native to shed some light on the war and what he has been doing in his country to make sure this war comes to an end. The movie titled “Move” will be screening and there will be free pizza and Epic Glee will also be performing. The event will take place in SUB 100 at 7 p.m. Please come out and ask all the questions you want!

I hope to see you all there.

We started the night with performances by Urban Lyrics and Male Call.
Urban Lyrics is having an event Oct. 18 at 8:00pm in SUB MPR.
We watched the Invisible Children film, “The Rescue”, followed by an update on what has happened since the film was made. Next, Brenda, a young woman from Uganda, shared her story of growing up during the war in Uganda. She is currently mentoring schoolgirls sponsored by Invisible Children. We were happy to share the day with Brenda because it was her birthday!
The event turned out very well and we are happy to have had everyone there to share this amazing night with us!
