Online voters push for arts in Obama administration
Here's a message I received from a music educator and self-desrcibed desktop activist named Timothy Kjer about an initiative that sounds very worthy to me:
FROM TIMOTHY KJER:
I wanted to see if I could get your quick help. I'm not sure if you've heard, but there's a movement of citizens inspired by the presidential campaign who are now submitting ideas for how they think the Obama Administration should change America. It's called "Ideas for Change in America." I've submitted an idea and wanted to see if you could quickly vote for it. The title is: Save the Arts Coalition.
The top 10 ideas are going to be presented to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day and will be supported by a national lobbying campaign run by Change.org, MySpace, and more than a dozen leading nonprofits after the Inauguration. So each idea has a real chance at becoming policy. Right now this idea is currently in 703rd Place in Economy and needs 1025 more votes to make it into the second round.
