Solana Beach hair studio hosts ‘Invisible Children’ screening March 29

On March 29, Invisible Children, a media-based non-profit dedicated to ending Africa’s longest-running war, will be screening “Tony” at La Colonia Community Center, located at 715 Valley Avenue, Solana Beach from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m., a free event hosted by staff at Ubuntu Hair Studio. To contact the studio or RSVP you may visit facebook.com or call 858-792-5959. Invisible Children exists to raise awareness about children abducted and forced to fight as soldiers in the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a rebel group currently terrorizing central east Africa.

The March 29 event, organized by Serena Jenichs of Ubuntu, is a part of Invisible Children’s Congo Tour, in which 17 teams are touring America in vans to show films featuring Ugandan teammates.

Each team is composed of three full-time, American volunteers and a Ugandan speaker. The Ugandans are advocating on behalf of Congolese villagers who have been under attack by the LRA, who first terrorized homes in Uganda before moving into the Democratic Republic of Congo in recent years. The Ugandan teammate will introduce film, share her experience and open the floor to questions or discussion following film. There will be merchandise for sale, including bracelets, handbags, and t-shirts, made in Uganda. All members of the community are invited to attend.
