New video makes direct plea to Senator Coburn

The LRA's abduction of 30 people from a church in Central African Republic this past weekend reminded us of the urgency of seeing the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act passed by Congress and signed into law by the President.

Oklahoma Faith Leaders: We need you!

The Dr. No Please Say Yes campaign is going full force and we are employing every strategy possible to show Senator Coburn the strength and scale of constituent support behind this legislation. Ultimately, Senator Coburn must see that there is widespread agreement that the gross injustices occuring in central Africa are worthy of our country's concern, engagement, and investment.

Get excited: Video Update #1

The Dr. No Please Say Yes campaign is well underway and we have released our first video update straight from the Resolve Uganda headquarters in DC. This will be the first in a series of videos we will send out to let you know about new developments in the campaign and most importantly, the best things that you can be doing to help.

OKLAHOMANS: Join the Dr. No Phone Blitz

At the core of the Dr. No Please Say Yes Campaign is one very powerful thing: Your voice. We believe that Senator Coburn values what you have to say, so now's the time to say it.

ALL YOU OKLAHOMANS, your voices matter most right now. At this stage of the game, you are the MVPs. We need you to lead the charge. Bag Phone

Why is Senator Coburn blocking this bill?

You'd think it would be uncontroversial that our political leaders would want to help end the reign of one of the world's worst war criminals. And while Senator Coburn supports the bill's overall intent, he is willing to block its passage unless specific - and untenable - changes are made that weaken the bill's impact.

Click here to view the full Campaign Q&A to learn more about why Coburn is blocking the bill, how it is that one Senator can do so, and what needs to be done about it.

Senator Inhofe (R-OK) addresses Coburn's hold in a speech to the Senate

Senator Inhofe (R-Ok) has continued to be a strong and committed voice within Congress on the issue of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Over the past few years, he has tirelessly called for greater U.S. engagement to end Joseph Kony's campaign of violence and to support LRA-affected communities in central Africa.

T-minus two days to launch

Senator Coburn should know better than to block a bill that is supported by thousands of his constituents in Oklahoma. This campaign will serve as the coordinating hub of activism to override Senator Coburn's hold and save legislation to help end Africa's longest-running war.

T-minus two days to full launch.
