To achieve our mission, we believe in combining online and offline activism. The following are 7 steps you can take to support the Peace on our Streets campaign - and help bring the war on drugs to an end.
1. CONTACT YOUR STATE LEGISLATORS
CALL your state representative and senator to encourage their action right now. Strongly, but respectfully make sure they know you want them to introduce and support this legislation.
MODEL LEGISLATION HERE: http://peaceonourstreets.com/legislation
CONTACT INFO HERE: http://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/
Note: We recommend a phone call over an email, as this has greatly-increased impact.
2. SPREAD THE WORD
Make sure to tell your friends on social media about the Peace on our Streets campaign. Use the hashtag #PeaceStreets to connect with others and encourage them to join the Campaign. Tweet your State Legislator(s).
We cannot succeed without your help - and without the financial resources to get things done. We accept no government grants, and have no corporate backers. In fact, those who lobby most aggressively against our work are government organizations and corporate interest groups
