We Are The Voice of the Grass

Interfaith Peace Activism in Northern Uganda

David A. Hoekema

  • Uncovers the story of an organization largely unknown to Western observers that has achieved remarkable results through its efforts at assistance and advocacy
  • Draws on a rich collection of personal interviews with leaders of the Christian and Muslim communities, formerly abducted men and women, former officers in the LRA, and residents of the region who suffered through the worst years of the conflict
  • Counters a distorted picture of northern Uganda and the LRA conflict that has been very widely disseminated by advocacy groups such as Invisible Children
