Documentary Film Screening: Tony


Location: Geddes Hall, Andrews Auditorium

Students from the ND-8 and Inspire student clubs, together with the Invisible Children student club from Saint Mary’s College, have created a monthlong series of lectures, films, and other events to bring attention to the complex and pervasive problem of human trafficking and modern-day slavery.

The series kicks off with a screening of the documentary Tony by Invisible Children, an organization dedicated to ending the use of child soldiers by Lord’s Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony’s rebel war. With the deployment by President Barack Obama of 100 “combat-ready” troops to Central Africa to provide technical assistance to forces trying to counter Kony, organizations like Invisible Children and Resolve, co-founded by Notre Dame alumni Michael Poffenberger, are beginning to have an impact on the crisis.

Sponsored by the aforementioned clubs, the Center for Social Concerns, and the Ford Family Program in Human Development and Solidarity.
