On Saturday 27 July, war-affected women from different parts of northern Uganda came together to share their experiences and highlight the way forward for transitional justice advocacy in the region.

Representatives of victims groups in Teso, Acholi, West Nile, Lango and Luweero spoke passionately about what challenges women face today. Guided by the theme ‘together we can’ (which was translated into Lugbara, Acholi, Iteso and Lango different languages), the meeting also served as an opportunity for war affected women to discuss ways in which they can work together to achieve their collective objectives towards justice and reconciliation.

Below are pictures of the event.
