Fighting ICWA? We are, too. Families Helping Each Other
The Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare (CAICW) is an advocate for
children and families hurt by the Indian Child Welfare Act, an example of misguided federal Indian policy.
There are Four things you can do today to help:
First, if you haven’t already, sign the petition on CAICW’s Cause page.
CAICW will be taking it with to DC in January, and it will help show Congressmen that this is an important issue to many!
Second, donate through MissionFish whenever you use Ebay. The Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare is Registered with MissionFish – a service through Ebay that helps nonprofits fundraise while buying and selling on ~ eBay. Sellers can give part of their proceeds to a favorite nonprofit, and nonprofits can raise funds by selling on eBay too. Direct donations from eBay users can also be given through a ‘Donate Now’ feature, which lets anyone with a PayPal account donate right away without buying or selling anything.
Third, CAICW is sending out a snail mail newsletter this week. It includes anonymous excerpts from four letters families have written, information about the DC trip, a paper copy of the petition for you to share with non-internet friends, and potential draft legislation to share with your newly elected state legislators. If you would like a copy, please contact CAICW with your snail address. [email protected]
Fourth, Look for Draft legislation that you can bring to your State Legislator for the next session on the CAICW website: caicw.org ~ and bring it to them! Hurry; they are putting together their plans for legislation right now!
