The America I believe in.

I am donating to Amnesty International's $595,000 THE AMERICA I BELIEVE IN mobilization effort.
They have three goals for this year.

1) Close Guantanamo Bay. Its shameful that we are holding hundreds of people without trials in a foreign land so they won't be subjected to our laws.

2) Reverse the Military Commissions Act. Everyone has the basic right to a fair and speedy trial.

3) End torture and Rendition (when we send people to countries that torture). We should be way above this.

There is legislation for all these things underway. So all we have to do is let our congress and senators know. I'm writing mine about my views also. We can make these goals this year.

The America I believe in leads the world on human rights.
