#SaveChrystulKizer

Send a letter to the Kenosha DA. Here’s a template:
Michael D Graveley
Kenosha County District Attorney
Molinaro Building
912 56th St
Kenosha, WI 53140
Dear District Attorney Michael D. Graveley,
My name is _____. I am from ____,__. I am writing on behalf of Chrystul Kizer, a minor forced into sexual conduct with an adult man, Randall Volar III, who was under investigation for child trafficking and child pornography. Sexual conduct between a 34-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl is a form of sexual violence. On June 5th, 2018, Kizer resisted Volar’s attempts to rape her. During the altercation, she shot Volar in self-defense. Rather than continue to be traumatized by the justice system, Kizer deserves freedom and counseling services in order to recover. Although she committed a crime, Kizer was victimized and abused, and acted in self-defense to save her life. I ask that you drop all charges against Chrystul Kizer immediately. Sincerely, _____.
Sign the change.org petition.
Donate to the Go Fund Me started by Chrystul’s mom to help pay for legal fees.

#SavetheAmazon

Donate to COIAB Amazonia, the Brazilian chapter of indigenous Amazon leaders. Donate to Instituto Terra. They work on educating about sustainability and environmentalism and correcting environmental damage. They’ve revived 17,000 acres of deforested ranch land which is now a thriving, biodiverse part of the rainforest. If you can’t donate, reach out and see how you can help.
Donate to Imaflora, an organization that partners with Rainforest Alliance to promote sustainable agriculture.
Donate to Instituto Socioambiental or contact them to find other ways to support the indigenous peoples of the Amazon.
Try to buy food and products that are Rainforest Alliance certified.
Contact Government Representatives. The US loves imperialist action. Make our elected officials denounce this environmental violence.
Put your name on the Greenpeace Petition. Help protect the rainforest and indigenous lands.

#FliptheSenate

Join Flip the Senate. Regardless of the outcome of the presidential election, we must get a Democratic majority in the Senate. Despite the blue wave, we lost seats in 2018. If we want any important legislation to pass, we cannot have a conservative Senate. Without legislative reform, social reform can only progress so much.
