Tell Congress to Listen to Survivors and Strengthen Efforts to End Modern Slavery

Tell Congress to Listen to Survivors and Strengthen Efforts to End Modern Slavery | ~Environment,wildlife,children,human rights and global issues~ | Scoop.it
As a young child here in Kentucky, my nightmare began when I was first auctioned off to a willing buyer and sexually abused. That scenario played out repeatedly in hotel rooms and private homes until I finally escaped at age 18—far too late to prevent numerous mental and physical health problems.” —Margeaux Gray

Tell Senator Moran to Support Clean Energy Jobs in Kansas

Tell Senator Moran to Support Clean Energy Jobs in Kansas | ~Environment,wildlife,children,human rights and global issues~ | Scoop.it
Kansas supports leaders who understand this simple truth: Instead of spending almost a billion dollars a day on foreign oil, we should produce more clean, renewable fuel here at home.  
Under the commonsense, bipartisan Renewable Fuel Standard, America has tripled production of renewable fuel in the last ten years. That has helped drive oil imports down to the lowest level in 20 years, reduced harmful pollution that fouls the air and causes climate change, and created hundreds of thousands of

Tell the White House and Congress to Set a Fair Price for Carbon

Tell the White House and Congress to Set a Fair Price for Carbon | ~Environment,wildlife,children,human rights and global issues~ | Scoop.it
We know we need to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions to solve the problem of climate change—a problem that extends beyond polar bears and the Arctic to affect all wildlife and people, too. But how do we achieve that goal? Experts say the surest way is to set a fair price for carbon pollution.
By including the true cost of carbon in the price we pay for fossil fuels, we can speed up the transition to a renewable energy future. Not only will this reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that c

Tell the U.S. Senate that #AllKidsMatter | ~Environment,wildlife,children,human rights and global issues~ | Scoop.it
If your child isn’t getting a great education, you don’t just shrug your shoulders.
America shouldn’t either.
Right now, Congress is debating an update to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the groundbreaking civil rights law that committed our country to providing a high-quality education for all our students.
We’ve made great progress under the law, but that may change because some of our leaders in Washington, D.C., are trying to back out on that commitment.

Helping my city’s homeless could land me in jail with a $2000 dollar fine.
Last November, a 90-year-old Florida man was arrested and faced 60 days in jail for feeding the homeless. A few months later, a San Antonio woman was hit with a $2000 dollar fine for doing the same.. These “feeding bans” have popped up all over the United States. In fact, more than 70 cities around the country have instituted or tried to institute similar ordinances.
