Invisible Children's Legacy Tour is Coming to LHS

Amnesty is extremely excited to welcome Invisible Children to an all school assembly on October 1, 2010. Invisible Children is an organization working with children in Uganda and Rwanda to end the use of child soldiers and support schooling for former soldiers. IC's Legacy Tour will be bringing a teenager from Uganda who has been a child soldier and is now in school to share his/her story with our school. Learn more at

Jamnesty Helps

We raised $400 for MADRE, an organization protecting women’s rights, during their annual Jamnesty fundraiser. The event was a huge success, and Amnesty would like to thank everyone who made it possible.

Invisible Children Legacy Tour to LHS

Just got this email from Invisible Children. We have to do this in the Fall!

"My name is Allysen Mahaffey and I am the New England representative for Invisible Children. I just left you a voicemail but also wanted to contact you via e-mail. I saw your screening request for an Invisible Children event at Ledyard High School, and wanted to contact you to see if you are still interested in helping set something up at Ledyard for our upcoming Fall tour. We are so excited to inform you that this Fall Tour we are once again bringing two Ugandan advocates over to the U.S. to tour with us. Joining our tour this Fall will be both a Ugandan student advocate and either a teacher or mentor from each of our partner schools in northern Uganda that our Schools for Schools clubs raise funds for each year. Similar to the Legacy Tour, they will share their story and advocate for their country and people, so it will be an impactful and powerful presentation we'd love to bring to Ledyard High School. In addition to the two Ugandan advocates, a past Schools for Schools student who won the trip to Uganda for their incredible efforts will also tour with us.

We will be in Connecticut late September. What are your thoughts? Feel free to e-mail or call me at 619-562-2799 ext. 169. I have attached a document that further describes Invisible Children and our involvement in high schools. Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you to make
this event a possibility!"

Jamnesty Planning

Jamnesty is coming soon, April 1st. Our cause is violence against women. We still need to decide on a specific organization to support. Several members have ideas, but we need to decide at our next meeting ASAP. The mandatory band meeting is set up for March 11 in my room after school.
