Tomorrow night, Northwest Arkansas will be among over 130 sites in the nation where citizens will participate in the "Global Night Commute" to call for an end to the use of child soldiers in Northern Uganda.

200 people are expected to sleep outside on Old Main lawn and some people will march to Fayetteville from as far away as Rogers and Springdale. Their experience is intended to simulate what the child soldiers have had to endure every day during the 20-year war.

Marchers can meet at the Fellowship Bible Church in Rogers at 10 a.m., the Pontiac Coffee House in Springdale at 1 p.m. and the Evelyn Hills Shopping Center in Fayetteville at 6 p.m.
