Join the campaign as a blogger, social influencer, volunteer lawyer, journalist, or just as a member of your community. There is a way for everyone to be involved in this campaign. Don’t have the time? Sign the petition in Joel’s post. It takes 30 seconds. Donate to Enddd.org. They in my opinion are mostly self funded, and are doing more work on this issue than anyone.
If you can’t donate, but have children, or care about this cause, get highschools pointed in Joel’s way. Volunteer to become a speaker or be an activist in way that works for you. Sharing any of these posts on your facebook, or sending it to a listserve that you belong to are easy ways to contribute.
