Last night a few of us got together at my house to begin sending the clear message to our representatives that we are opposed to the budget proposal that would slash funding for domestic and sexual violence survivors, and programs like PWCL and our sister agencies. It was fun, but we need more people to write and call in order to make our voices heard.
We talked about doing this again next week at someone else's house. I know a few of you own guitar hero or rock band, which could add a whole other level to getting together and calling Ron, Earl or Gordon.
You can follow this link to participate in the call to action, read more about it, and to sign up for future alerts through the Stop Family Violence organization. http://stopfamilyviolence.org/ocean/host.php?o=0,3&folder=3&T
Also, as I'm writing this post I can't help but to think about some of the critical essays in The Revolution Will Not Be Funded, talking specifically about the trouble with government funding. The book speaks truth to this current dilemma, and if you haven't checked it out yet, you really should!
