Suzan and Phil Wilmot, Solidarity Uganda
Solidarity Uganda is active in Northern Uganda, primarily in Amuru District, which has fallen victim to a 100,000 acre land grab, affecting thousands of agrarian families. Through community building, non violent resistance training and providing local residents with the tools they need to resist government intimidation, Solidarity Uganda has helped to build a true citizen movement. In 2013, the technology they purchased with their Pollination Project grant helped mobilize a whole village against police intimidation. Read their story firsthand– it is truly remarkable!
