Amnesty Holiday Invitation [13 Nov 2006|04:10pm]

Letting everyone know that I'm hosting an Amnesty International Write-A-Thon in my ladycatherina journal, and you're all invited!

The Write-A-Thon is a free event where we write letters to governments on behalf of nonviolent political prisoners around the world, beginning November 28th and continuing through December 10th, International Human Rights Day. Around the 28th a list of actions will be available on the Amnesty webpage (http://www.amnestyusa.org), and I'll download them and post the addresses and information in my journal. Whoever's interested can let me know via comments and we can split the actions up as we go.

I did this last year with a friend and got through the entire list of appeals, Holiday Card actions, etc. To make it more fun, we can all take breaks where we post jokes, stories, recipes, etc as comments to the Writeathon post.

Uganda's Calling [02 Oct 2006|05:22pm]

Answer the call.

Sorry if this is not allowed in the community, I can remove it if asked - but I thought some of you might be interested in this new community.

I'm a board member of ugandacalling, and we exist to raise awareness of and work for the end of the civil war in Northern Uganda, which has victimized many innocent civilians, particularly children, and left many homeless and desperately poor. We're trying to provide resources for local groups working on this issue - collecting petitions for groups to circulate, providing ideas for fundraisers for worthy projects, posting news articles and bulletins about Uganda, and letting activists and interested people get together to learn more and network with each other. And we still need lots of people to help us carry on all these functions and get us off the ground as a nonprofit - as well as community leaders who'd like to start something for Uganda!

If you're interested in learning more or helping out, please check out the community - everyone's very nice and positive, we'd love to see you!

punkvoter.com [30 Dec 2003|10:31pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

oooooo, very cool site. i like. if only i could register to vote...not till this summer. But it really is easy, i've been going around with forms registering ppl, and then i just take a bundle over to the office, and its SO easy. Plus, i always assumed i'd register as independent, but it gives u so much more control if you register as democrat, cuz then you at least have some say in the primary. and using yr voice in as many ways as possible is def the most important thing. that's waht democracy is supposedly about, right? not about the media and all the bullshit garbage it spews out. And not about ABC dropping coverage of 3 candidates just cuz it doesnt agree with their positions or b/c "they're unlikely to win" or whatever. 2 words: Bull. Shit.

not cool man. not cool at all.
