Kony 2012 Debate: Does The Campaign Create Effective Social Change? (Change My Mind)

03/19/2012 09:41 am ET | Updated Mar 19, 2012

Welcome to a new Huffington Post platform called “Change My Mind.” In this forum, we will match two bloggers against each other with the aim of changing readers' minds.

In this case, we're asking the question "Does the 'Kony 2012' campaign do enough to create effective social change?" There's no denying 'Kony 2012' has made a dent in the world of activism. But what kind of lasting effect does this campaign have?

Jenna Arnold, who owns a social change media company, and Mikaela Luttrell-Rowland, from Clark University's Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, speak their piece in our first debate installment.

Check out what each of these Impact bloggers has to say, and weigh in below.
