Our Change.org petition has broken 3,500 signatures. We would like to get to 5,000. Not only because more numbers is a greater indication of more people thinking the registry is a human rights violation, but because we want more people to read the actual petition! People who are not informed about the registry may not have a true understanding of how destructive and counter productive it is.

For that reason we are looking for 5 volunteers to take on part of the below list and contact the human rights organizations asking them to support our petition. The task is simple; one-by-one, contact the twenty organizations by visiting their website and either filling out their online contact form or writing to them via the email address on their contact us page.

The message should be something to the effect of, “I am writing to request your organization’s support of our petition to investigate a human rights crisis. The petition can be found at http://Change.org/FAC-humanrightsforall. I would be grateful if you could share this petition with your members or anyone at your organization who might be interested in our cause.”

It should not take more than an hour to get through all 20. If you would like to volunteer for this task, please reply in the comments indicating which Group you would like to take, so we can be sure that all 5 are covered.
