(1) Secure organizational letters or statements of support for the legislation, directed to Webb's office.
(2) Conduct outreach to a broad spectrum of organizations that have an interest in the criminal justice system, including: judges, lawyers (defense and prosecutors), conservative and liberal think tanks, women's and girls' organizations, law enforcement, local government and others. As you reach out to organizations, please let us know so we can keep track of organizations that should receive information about future meetings.
(3) Support in securing additional cosponsors in the Senate and moving legislation in the House.
There are growing numbers of House Bills, too, and remember that a small group of volunteers can easily educate and motivate guests that come to your meetings.
A bright spot, aside from November's fruit trees blooming, were morning headlines, major newspapers heralding the "Drug War is Over."
While loved-ones are imprisoned, it's not really over, but our group invigorated knowing political possibilities aren't a distant dream, that our work makes progress.
Please join us. If you or your group needs assistance making a banner, publicity poster, or radio service announcement, we are here to help. If you are having trouble finding a resource on our website, contact the November Coalition staff -- help is an email, or a phone call away. We are here to help us all find ways we can be effective organizers of social change.
