Create a Cabinet Position on Violence Against Women

We have a new President, a new start, and Hope that he has promised us in the coming term, below is one step towards seeing hope for those that are affected by Domestic Violence and all it entails.  Just a couple clicks, let's see what we can do!


Dear Friends and Colleagues:

We need your help.

One in Three Women™ has submitted an "idea" on Change.org and we need your vote.
"President-Elect Obama says he wants to hear ideas from everyone, so we're taking him up on his offer by submitting our idea: Create a Cabinet Position on Violence Against Women. The "Top 10 Ideas for America" will be presented to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day. Change.org will then build a national campaign to advance each idea in Congress. A huge step forward for all of us and we don't have to finance it ourselves. Click here to begin your voting process. It takes two minutes to do.

Then click on the blue Vote graphic in the top left of the page. DO NOTclick on the widget in the right hand column. Clicking on that widget will not do anything, it is an example of what you can place on a webpage. You will see a pop-up window that asks for your name, email address and to create a password. Easy. You will see a message at the top of the new page informing you that your vote is not counted until you receive a confirmation link and once you have clicked on the link your vote is recorded.
We are all part of a constituency of thousands of people working to end violence against women (VAW) and we can make this happen. If each of us does our part by voting for our idea and ask others to vote we can easily  make this idea a reality.

We hear that a high level position may be created in the White house on VAW and that is great news but we still feel that a cabinet level position on VAW is long over due. 

In the Spirit of Friendship and Peace,
Cheyla and Evelyn
