You are invited to this special event as we send off Fight for the Forgotten cofounder Justin Wren and crew to embark on an incredible mission to bring land, water, food, and a sustainable future to the Batwa Pygmies.
We will provide an exciting introduction to the Fight For The Forgotten mission expansion to Uganda as well as a round table discussion with Brady Nasfell of Positive Image and producer of an upcoming Fight For The Forgotten documentary, Garrett McManus of Cash App and funder of the documentary, and Justin Wren, Founder and President of Fight For The Forgotten.
A Forgotten People
The Batwa Pygmies in southwestern Uganda are among the most bullied people in the world. After co-existing with the rainforest as hunter-gatherers and "Keepers of the Forest" for more than 60,000 years, the Pygmies are now being systematically evicted from their ancestral home.
With no compensation for their losses or tools to help them adapt to modern society, they have been left landless, homeless, hopeless, and on the verge of literal extinction as a people.
Justin Wren and Fight for the Forgotten are partnering with in-country Ugandan businesses and NGOs to provide the Batwa Pygmies with land, water, resources, and education to enable them to build their own sustainable future.
The event will be filmed in conjunction with a documentary film being produced by Positive Image Video.
Justin Wren Foundation dba Fight for the Forgotten is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
