Students participate in Global Night Commute for Ugandan ‘invisible children’

After months of planning, many Eastern students trekked into Philadelphia for a “Global Night Commute,”which was planned by the organization Invisible Children, Inc. The Commute was organized in order to raise awareness about children in Uganda, who walk into major cities each night in order to avoid abduction. The Commute was scheduled to take place all over the world on April 29. Over 1,000 people were signed up on IC’s website for the Philadelphia Commute, and over 58,000 were signed up in the United States. Commuters in Philadelphia slept out on Independence Mall, across from the Liberty Bell on 5th and Market Streets. Photo provided by Kristina Caldwell.
