Nov 7, 2015(Nyamilepedia) —- The Sudanese People Liberation Movement Youth League in the United States had their first annual conference/ fundraiser in Omaha, NE on Saturday October 31st. The event was a success! Our theme was “Give Peace a Chance”. Assured enough the vibe of the whole night was peaceful.
Several grass root community groups came together under one umbrella to share with one another, words of wisdom to better our country. In particular what made this event unique is the fact that it was the first time that the SPLM/A Youth league had gotten so many youth leaders together; that in particular, more than anything, is what made it a success. Groups that were present at this event were Mabaan youth, Naath Youth, Women League chairperson, Nyagile Thot, Honorable Reath Muoch Tang, SPLM/A National Coordinator (USA) Sabatta Ramba. We the SPLM/A Youth league want to take this time to recognize all of your efforts to support us.
A special thank you goes out to all the women who came and supported us at this event. As we all know here in the U.S. it is the women who generally contribute the most financially. The event would not have been such a success with out them. Lastly, a general thank you to all the other community groups who attended.
The total amount that was raised at the event was 1,209 not as much as we could have made but, we believe the most important part was that we created a safe and peaceful platform for people to speak their minds freely.
Agenda for FUNDRAISING: SPLM/SPLA-YL
As we gathered on Saturday, October 31st, we kindly asked everyone to support us. The particular reason being that want we want to establish SPLM/SPLA Youth League offices in all (15) states where there is a presence of SPLM/A here in the USA. In these Youth Leagues we want each office to:
- Read the peace agreement in detail and discuss it in each office.
- Advocate for peace in communities.
- On social media: Internet warriors become advocates for peace.
- Public rally for peace if possible.
- Agree to advocate on one medium: craft unified messages.
