All riled up from reading about the risk of the renewable energy production tax credit not being extended past the end of this year, I set out to see what I could do to help, as a citizen. I quickly found out, it is not easy, being a full-fledged citizen in America. I thought there would be one website for all citizen directed activism, a clearing house listing all the issues at stake, with a clearly outlined process for each, including petitions, automatic links to representatives in my district, model letters to send, and suggestions for other initiatives. What I found instead are some bits and pieces, here and there:
- On the Petition Site, part of Care2, you can sing a petition letter.
- On Neutral Existence you can access the contact info for your local representatives
- On We Can Solve It, you get tips on how to prepare for a visit with your representative
If you know of any other resources, please share them in your comments.
