PennEnvironment : Volunteer for a New Energy
Are you interested in volunteering to get Congressional candidates'
support for a bold, new energy future? We've teamed up with the
Progressive Voter Network and our organizer, Clayt Freed, will contact
you and let you know how you can help out.
To get involved, click on
the link or paste it into your web browser:
We're asking candidates to support a new energy future, including the
* Saving one-third of the oil we use today by 2025. Through improved
gas mileage, better transportation choices and clean fuels, we could
save more than twice the amount of oil we import from the Persian Gulf.
* Harnessing clean, renewable homegrown energy sources like wind, solar
and alternative fuels for at least a quarter of all energy needs by
* Helping America save energy with high-performance homes, buildings
and appliances so that by 2025 we use 10 percent less energy than we do
* Investing in the New Energy for America Initiative. Triple research
and development funding for energy-saving and renewable technologies so
we can accomplish these goals.

Call Congress Today to Sign Declaration!202-224-3121
Here is a script you can follow when you make your call:
Ask to speak to the Legislative Aide in charge of Iraq policy. If you
get their voicemail, ask them to call you back. Polls show that a
majority of Americans, Iraqis and US troops are ready for Congress and
the president to set a timetable to end the war and bring the Troops
home. I am calling to encourage Rep. (or Senator) X to listen, and work
for a comprehensive, principled and rapid plan to end the war.
Specifically, I am asking Rep (or Senator) X to sign the Declaration of
Peace Congressional pledge, which was hand-delivered to your office
yesterday. The pledge asks members of Congress to support these bills:
In the U.S. House:
H.R. 4232: End the War in Iraq Act Introduced by Rep. Jim McGovern
H.Con.Res.348: Expressing the sense of Congress with respect to
accomplishing the mission in Iraq Introduced by Rep. Mike Thompson
H.Con.Res.197: No Permanent Bases in Iraq Introduced by Rep. Barbara
In the U.S. Senate:
S.Con.Res.93: Expressing the sense of Congress with respect to
accomplishing the mission in Iraq Introduced by Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA)
Will the Representative (or Senator) support the Declaration of Peace?
Will the Representative (or Senator) support any of the legislation I
Please let us know how your Representative and Senators respond to
these calls! It is especially important if any offices tell you that
they will sign the Declaration of Peace! We will need to follow-up with
them! Report on your calls to Congress@declarationofpeace.org
p.s. -- There are hundreds
of Declaration of Peace events around the country starting this week!

The Senate Can Stop Torture - FCNL & Amnesty
International- Legislative Action Message
Read this alert online: <http://www.fcnl.org/action/2006/lam0918.htm>
Congress is in a bind. Many members of Congress are opposed to any
legislation that would condone torture, secret prisons, or other
programs that would undermine U.S. security, and violate the moral
principles on which this nation was founded. But member of Congress are
under pressure because the president is arguing that these techniques
are necessary for the defense of the United States.
Hearing from their constituents now could help them resolve this
dilemma and do the right thing. Please contact your senators today to
let them know you oppose brutal, inhuman and degrading.
Write or call 1-800-AMNESTY and speak out against torture and
Torture is Not Acceptable, Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere
Support "Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions", the Supreme Court
has upheld international law calling for fair trials and prohibiting
torture and other cruel and degrading treatment. I urge the Senator to
maintain this ruling by rejecting any proposals that would weaken the
Geneva Conventions, allowing for unfair trials and ill-treatment of
people in detention.
Order FCNL publications and
"War is Not the Answer" campaign bumper stickers and yard signs.

Prisoner Visitation and Support: A Unique Ministry
Prisoner Visitation and Support (PVS) is the only nationwide,
interfaith visitation program with access to all federal and military
prisons and prisoners in the United States. Sponsored by 35
national religious bodies and socially-concerned agencies (consisting
of Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and secular organizations), PVS
seeks to meet the needs of prisoners through an alternative ministry
that is separate from official prison structures.
PVS was founded in 1968 by Bob Horton, a retired Methodist minister,
and Fay Honey Knopp, a Quaker activist, to visit imprisoned
conscientious objectors. In its first five years of service, PVS
volunteers visited over 2,000 conscientious objectors. PVS was
encouraged by the war resisters to visit other prisoners and, today,
PVS visits any federal or military prisoner wanting a visit.
Today, PVS has 300 volunteers who visit at more than 90 federal and
military prisons across the country. The visitors make monthly
visits to see prisoners who rarely, if ever, receive outside
visits. PVS visitors also focus on seeing those prisoners with an
acute need for human contact: those serving long sentences, those
frequently transferred from prison to prison, and those in solitary
confinement and on death row. No other group has this access.
PVS is very selective in appointing local volunteer visitors, who are
appointed only after a personal interview with one of the two PVS
visitor recruiters. Visitor training is provided by ongoing
contact with the PVS national office, a PVS training manual, a PVS
video, and an annual workshop. PVS visitors must:
Be able to visit regularly,
at least once a month.
Be good listeners, who reach
out to prisoners in a spirit of mutual respect, trust and
acceptance. Be aware not to impose their religious or philosophical
beliefs on prisoners.
Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking, says, "PVS does good
work and I should know that. I had the privilege of addressing
the PVS visitors at their annual training workshop in Leavenworth,
Kansas, in 1994." Since PVS does not seek or receive any government
money, so as to be independent of the prison system, it is dependent
upon donations, which are tax-deductible, from individuals and
congregations. If you know of anyone who might wish to make a
donation to PVS, or who might be interested in becoming a prison
visitor, please let PVS know by writing to:

Greetings and an invitation from Jerusalem-
Sabeel's Sixth International Conference, Nov 2-9 in Palestine and
The theme of the conference is "The Forgotten Faithful: A Window into
the Life and Witness of Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land."
The conference will differ from previous Sabeel conferences in that it
will be a "roving" conference. It will begin in Jerusalem and move to
Bethlehem, Jericho, Ramallah, Nazareth, and the Sea of Galilee in
addition to a number of smaller Christian villages around Ramallah and
in the Upper Galilee. Through lectures, workshops, worship and
excursions in the Holy Land, the conference will provide a unique
opportunity to encounter the realities that Christians in Palestine and
Israel face on a daily basis. Registration is open for one
more month for this conference. You can find more information including
a draft program, speakers and conference updates on Sabeel's website
www.sabeel.org and register on our website. If your
schedule does not allow you to attend, please encourage others to be
with us and follow the conference summaries on our website.
We thank you for your interest and support and hope to welcome you in
Jerusalem in November.
