Get Five Petition Drive:
Jubilee Justice 2000 Campaign - Phase Two
Or "Why did I get a copy of this paper?"
Some who will read our paper this issue have received it after signing one of the thousands upon thousands of Jubilee Justice 2000 Petitions that are circulating the country. Last issue, prisoners of the drug war were asked to mail this petition to a loved one, appealing to them to have five friends or acquaintances read and sign it. Just five, not an overwhelming number; it's the "Get Five Petition Drive".
If you signed such a petition, we have sent you a complimentary copy of our newspaper and opportunity to take the inserted petition to five of your friends and family and ask them to sign the petition as well. When you are finished, please mail them to the address on the bottom of the petition.
For those of you who sent us completed Jubilee Justice Petitions, you will quickly notice that there is yet another petition inserted into this paper. We are asking for you to gather 5 more signatures this 2-month period and please send us completed petitions as soon as you have them in hand. About 75% of our mail volume are petitions these days - and that's a bundle indeed! You are to be congratulated!
In October, some members of the November Coalition will be in Washington, DC to attend the Institute of Policy Studies annual awards ceremony. The November Coalition has been chosen to be the recipient of a Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights award (see notification letter on page 4). IPS will help arrange meetings, press interviews and assist in highlighting our Jubilee Justice Campaign. We plan on delivering signed Jubilee Justice Petitions to President William Jefferson Clinton before the awards ceremony in October. How many we deliver is now in your hands.
In brief summary, phase 2 of the Get Five Petition Drive, will fulfill five functions:
Our members should find this project of ease and interest. Next issue you will be given more opportunity to participate in a brand new phase of this project. Help us with phase two today! Tell your loved ones to access the internet at: www.jubileejustice.org for updated information. The campaign is well underway.
