Texas Moratorium Network sent an email out a few days ago asking people to vote for “Abolish the Death Penalty” in the Ideas for Change contest at Change.org. 236 TMN members have voted so far, which is a little more than one-quarter of the total votes of 820 as of now. Thanks for everyone who already voted. If you have not yet voted, please do. We need another hundred votes or so to move into the top ten. The idea was started at change.org by Gilles Denizot. Nice job Gilles!
Take a moment to vote for the Abolish the Death Penalty as an Idea for Change in America at Change.org. (You will have to register atChange.org to vote.) If the idea becomes one of the top ten, Change.org will host an event in Washington, DC, where each of the 10 ideas will be presented to representatives of the media, the nonprofit community, and to relevant officials in the Obama Administration. After the announcement, Change.org will mobilize the full resources of their staff, their 1 million community members, and their extended network of bloggers to support a series of grassroots campaigns to turn each idea into reality.
- We need to VOTE NOW..
- We need to TELL FRIENDS (click on email below).
- We need to SHARE the idea around us, on Facebook, on Twitter, everywhere.
- We need to POST the WIDGET on our personal webpages (find the code here, simply copy & paste it where you want it to appear).
We need to understand that it will ONLY happen if we do what we need to make it happen. And we only have until February 25th, 2010! Let’s get ready for Washington D.C.
