Last week, the charity Invisible Children caused an immediate viral sensation when it released its documentary Invisible Children, which took aim at indicted war criminal Joseph Kony.
Although many were compelled to share, donate, and get involved with Invisible Children’s cause, others (including myself) was very critical of the campaign.
After the video was released many questioned the group’s financials, the reasoning behind focusing on Joseph Kony despite his diminished influence, and what exactly they hope to accomplish with the campaign.
Recently, the group released another video and its CEO Ben Keesey attempted to answer some of the questions surrounding the group.
After watching the video I still have some questions, and while I give the group props for seeing a need and raising awareness about the (former) children of Uganda, my question remains: Now what?
What do you think of Invisible Children’s response to its critics?
