Please join author Evelyn Amony for the launch of her recently released memoir, I am Evelyn Amony: Reclaiming my Life from the Lord’s Resistance Army. Reflecting on her life as the forced wife to Joseph Kony, leader of the armed group the Lord’s Resistance Army, Amony provides a rare glimpse inside the rebel group that continues to operate in Central and East Africa to date, nearly 30 years after it was founded. Now chair of the Women’s Advocacy Network (WAN) composed of 900 survivors, Amony strives for justice and reparation on behalf of war-affected persons.

The event will take place at the Japan Society, Murase Room. 333 E 47th St, New York, NY 10017; starting at 5:45 pm.

Survivors Speak: Workshop with Evelyn
The launch will be followed by an interactive workshop on June 16th inspired by Evelyn's story, featuring Evelyn and other survivors of sexual and gender-based violence alongside leading international experts.
