Ok – first let me encourage you to sign up and become a subscriber to this blog if you have not done so already.Â Becoming a subscriber gives you the convenience of receiving automatic updates delivered to your inbox whenever I update the site with a new post.Â For those concerned about receiving too much email in your inbox already, I assure you that I do not abuse this feature and you can discontinue using this service whenever you wish.Â Visit the SUBSCRIBER PAGE (or the email subscriber boxÂ at the top left of the homepage)Â and enter your email.Â You will receive a verification email in your inbox and there will be a link there that you have to click in order to start receiving the automatic updates.
Second, I have just created a new page called TAKE ACTION.Â This page will be a meeting place for those e-activists out there who wish to make a difference in the world while remaining at their computer.Â I recognize that everyone doesn’t have the ability to get to every press conference, attend every hearing, or show up for every rally.Â People care deeply about social justice issues, but they’re busy.Â I get it.Â So I created the TAKE ACTION page so that you can easily add your 2 cents to meaningful social justice movements going on around the world while enjoying your surfing experience on my blog.Â I’ll be updating the TAKE ACTION page frequently so please check it often.Â The TAKE ACTION issue this week involves a bill currently in the Baltimore City Council that would seek to divest from companies doing business with Sudan.Â In essence, this bill will put pressure on the Sudanese Government – the type of pressure that will force it to stop sponsoring genocide in Darfur and to protect the 2.5 million people that have already been displaced by theÂ government-sponsored Janjaweed militia. Check out the TAKE ACTION page and follow the easy steps to email members of Baltimore City Council in support of theÂ Sudan Divestment Bill.Â (I provided the names, emails, and even the message that you can send in support)
As Always – Thank you for taking the time to visit and support my blog.Â
