SNU students participate in Global Night Commute

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - Southern Nazarene University students will participate in the “Global Night Commute” walking the lawn of the State Capitol Saturday evening, April 29, 2006.

For years there have been reports about the young children of Uganda that have been kidnapped, brainwashed and forced to fight as soldiers. Children gather in huge numbers to walk miles together every evening. They sleep side by side on floors united together in the cities, all to avoid forcible abduction into the rebel army.

A group of Southern Nazarene University (SNU) students plan to participate in a similar night commute that has been planned across our country in order to raise awareness of the desperate situation of these children.

“The Global Night Commute is a worldwide event organized by the Invisible Children Inc. organization”. The Night Commute will feature people from around the world converging on urban centers in solidarity with displaced Ugandan children attempting to avoid capture by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).

Keith Pardue, SNU’s Acting on AIDS President, is the student who is organizing this effort along with the help of Brenda Wiebe, also of SNU. For further information on the Global Night Commute, contact Keith Pardue at kpardue@mail.snu.edu.
