The International Solidarity Movement

On March 16th, a young American, Rachel Corrie, 23, was killed when she was run over by an Israeli military bulldozer. Rachel was trying to stop the bulldozer from demolishing the home of a Palestinian doctor in the Gaza Strip. You can find out more about Rachel and the life she led at the International Solidarity Movement. To voice your protest to the Israeli government for this senseless murder, go here. Or, to write your member of Congress here in the US, go here.

Our thoughts are with Rachel's friends and family, and we honor a woman who was senselessly killed, simply for protecting the house of a Palestinian doctor.

Nuclear Policy Research Institute

The mission of the Nuclear Policy Research Institute (NPRI) is to produce massive, effective, ongoing public education campaigns in major U.S. media about the often-underestimated dangers of nuclear weapons and power programs and policies. NPRI takes as its inspiration Thomas Jefferson's observation that "an informed democracy will behave in a responsible fashion" and believes that the only way to counter the perilous and tremendously expensive nuclear programs is to inform the U.S. public, its policy makers, and the global community about the true economic, social, political, biomedical, and moral costs of ongoing nuclear policies.

Decisions are made at meetings of the coordinating committee, which is open to representatives of all participating groups.

Make Trade Fair

Did you know that every time you buy something made or grown in a developing country, you take part in a billion dollar scam? As it works today, the global trading system rips off people who are already poor. You don't want it. They certainly don't want it. Together, we can change it. Maketradefair.com gives a voice to the farmers, labourers, and factory workers who are being cheated by the blatantly unfair rules of world trade. And it gives a voice to you, the consumer, if you want to join them in the call to end exploitation and make trade fair.

Alliance for Justice

Since its inception in 1979, the Alliance for Justice has worked to promote a fair and independent judiciary and strengthen public interest advocacy.

Particularly troubling, and representative of a large slate of Bush�s highly problematic nominees, is the renomination of Judge Charles W. Pickering, Jr., and Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen, both of whom were rejected by the Senate Judiciary Committee last year. Check them out.
