Take Action Monday

I decided to make "Take Action Friday" "Take Action Monday," because Mondays kind of blow, and it helps to do something good on a day so suckish. Plus, I was gone from my computer for several days, so I have a lot of petitions for you all to sign and e-mails to send to your legislators.

Thank your Senators if they voted against the new FISA amendments that were passed that gave telecommunications companies retroactive immunity for spying on all of us without warrants.

Urge your Representitives to put pressure on the Indonesian government to release to prisoners who were arrested for celebrating their independence.

Add your name to the list of people opposing the new FISA bill.

Tell the five permanent members of the UN Security Council to act and help end the genocide in Darfur.

Have you ever been a victim of workplace discrimination? Share your story with the National Women's Law Center.

Even if you're not from California, e-mail Governor Schwarzenegger and tell him to do something about the farmworkers who have been dying heatstroke.

Tell Congress to fund Title X and ditch abstinence-only sex education.

Urge your Senator to stand up against HIV-positive immigrant discrimination.

Support the Employee Free Choice Act.
