          National Actions:  
             Health:
Watch this chilling video, then act!
We take antibiotics for granted. Strep throat, sinus infection, UTI a quick visit to the doctor, a prescription, and you're feeling better.


             Money:
Elizabeth Warren needs our help to hold our victory!
Elizabeth Warren needs us! The Wall Street banks think they have the votes to roll back some of our biggest bank reform victories. They think we've forgotten the economic meltdown. They think Americans can't stay united. Let's show them they're wrong!
Students deserve the same fair deal!
Congress recently stopped credit card companies from using dirty tricks to keep millions of Americans from paying off their card debt. But college students? Not so much.

             Food:
Tell the Senate: Americans want to buy American grown meats!
Consumer fought long and hard to get country-of-origin labels on meat and poultry. You should have the right to buy American, just like with other products labeled in the U.S.
Your Lawmaker could vote to take away GMO labeling!
GMO labeling puts freedom of choice in your hands, allowing you to decide whether or not you want to buy food that is genetically engineered.
End overuse of antibiotics in livestock!
Tell your lawmakers you want an end to antibiotic overuse on farm animals. It matters not only for the animals but for your family's health!
Save our antibiotics for when we need them!
A new Consumer Reports investigation found that meat from conventionally raised turkeys had bacteria resistant to more drugs than birds raised without antibiotics. It's time to save our antibiotics, and stop feeding drugs to our food animals!
Don't lose your freedom of choice!
Tell your state legislators that you want genetically engineered food sold in New York to be labeled so you can make an informed choice.
Dump the meaningless "natural" label on foods!
If you thought "natural" meant no antibiotics or GMOs or pesticides, you are not alone. But it doesn't mean any of those things. It doesn't mean much at all. Tell FDA and USDA to stop letting food companies dupe consumers.
Trader Joe's: Watch this video and get our meat off drugs
Get our meat off drugs! A half-million consumer signatures are delivered to Trader Joe's flagship store asking for an end to antibiotic-raised meat. Watch what happens!
Stop the end-run on your right to know!
The giant chemical and food processing industries are pulling out the stops to block your right to know. They're pushing a bill just introduced in the House that would block states from implementing their own labeling laws.

             Media & Telecommunications:
Telcos: We want the robocalls stopped!
Tell the phone companies to offer free robocall blocking options NOW! There are ways to give you relief. Its time to motivate them with a national campaign and 500,000 angry customers speaking as one!
FCC: No robocalls to cell phones!
Some industries want to robocall your cell phone. Right now, robocalls to cell phones are prohibited, although some shysters still try to get through. If you want to keep the robocallers at bay, tell the FCC to say "NO!" to this bad idea.

             Other:
Support auto safety!
Don't let Congress cut the budget of our nation's auto safety agency!
Detergent pods shouldn't look like candy!
Tell the big manufacturers to stop making detergent pods that look like candy, and add a bittering agent so kids will quickly spit out anything they try to eat.
Drivers' Privacy, Safety at Risk!
Electronic devices built into your car could betray your privacy. Urge the Government to Act!

Kim and EricKim Witczak and Eric Swan have met with Governor Pawlenty and Rep. Jim Ramstad of Minnesota, who became a joint co-sponsor of drug safety legislation in the House.

Dick Lambert
Dick Lambert of Roseville, MN contacted the Financial Privacy Now (FPN) campaign to further educate and encourage members in his community to become aware of issues outside Roseville. Aside from contacting a local AARP and legislators, Dick posted information on the Minnesota security freeze bill on the Roseville Citizens League webpage to get out the word and generate more support on the bill. His web and political savviness helped to invigorate what started off as a bill with limited protections to one of the best security freeze laws in the nation!
