Today's oprah show really moved me to action! The show was about sexual slavery (child sex slaves) within the US and abroad. She has taken a stand for the children and has implemented a letter (or e-mail) writing campaign to our Senators and congressmen/woman. I really believe in writing campaigns and most of them I have been involved in have WORKED.
Please see Oprah's page with sample letters or an e-mail sample you can copy and paste and e-mail your Senators & Congressmen/woman. Find your states representatives here. I just finished e-mailing my own representatives and it makes me feel good. However, the power is in numbers, so please write today.
I was personally compelled to write an e-mail to President Bush as well- I figure it doesn't hurt, right? Please contact me or post any other letter writing campaigns you know of.
