Change.org wants you to change our government. Inspired by President-elect Obama’s commitment to “open the doors of government,” Change.org is offering people an opportunity to send ideas to the incoming administration that will bring real, tangible solutions for our country. They will then present the “Top 10 Ideas for America” to the Obama administration on Inauguration Day and work with partner organizations to turn those ideas into specific policies.
At Amnesty, we know that one of the most important changes our nation can make is to restore its respect for human rights and the rule of law. A crucial first step is to investigate abuses carried out in the War on Terror and ensure accountability all the way up the chain of command.
We are already pressuring the President-elect Obama through our 100 Days Campaign to make human rights central to his administration. Help us gather even more support by going to change.org and voting up this issue. Let’s send the message loud and clear that Americans care about human rights and our government should too!
