Cariol Horne Whistleblowers’ Fund
This fund, created by the WNYPC, was created a to support police officers
who face reprisals from their department for choosing to strictly uphold
their oath to protect and serve the community.  The fund is named for
Cariol Horne, former police officer, who faced reprisals when she saved
the life of a citizen who was being subjected to excessive force on her
duty. She was fired just prior to earning her 20-year pension. 
The goal of the fund is to encourage good police officers to follow their
moral conscience if and when it conflicts with the infamous blue wall of
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_wall_of_silence). So far $565 has been
raised in one day.  Please go to
https://www.gofundme.com/cariol-horne-whistleblower-fund to contribute.
Many Thanks!!

Here are the addresses for 3 different petitions to free Leonard Peltier.
If this doesn't conflict with any of your principles, could you select the
one you would like to sign. Please send to as many people as you can.
Thank You,

Tell Congress Michael Flynn Cannot be Allowed to Serve Trump administration!
In the parade of bad appointments that is the new Trump administration,
phobic (xeno-, Islamo-) retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn stands out. He’s
one of the most egregious picks – and now he’s the most vulnerable. In
August, Flynn claimed that signs along the U.S.-Mexico border written in
Arabic were there for the express purpose of guiding terrorists into the
United States. This is absurd, and a man with these opinions should have
no voice on our national security.
Please, write to your members of Congress today and ask them to speak out
and oppose Flynn's appointment. - See more at:

It’s not over ‘til it’s over.  People are still at the camp.
From “Honor The Earth:”
‘The resistance camps at Standing Rock are more than just opposition to a
pipeline – they are the embodiment of a historic resurgence of Indigenous
Nations, and a blossoming, multi-racial, grassroots movement to protect
our Mother Earth.   It is essential that we carry the energy from this
fight forward, to the many other places where fossil fuel infrastructure
projects threaten our lands and water.’
