Democracy in Action - An Interactive Civics Lesson for your Students
Countless numbers of us have been petitioning Congress for the last 2 months to get them to repeal CPSIA, or at least amend this far-reaching law. Numerous hearings have been scheduled, and canceled, between those who are struggling under the weight of this law and those in Congress who refuse to budge. Finally, out of frustration, many of those in the "this law has to be fixed" groups have organized their own hearings:
This Wednesday, April 1, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. (eastern time) there is an "Amend the CPSIA" Rally in Washington, D.C. Citizens from all over the country will be gathering to address this issue. For those of us who are unfortunately unable to attend, they will have it available on streaming video on the website: www.amendthecpsia.com. We plan to watch it at CLC as part of our Government Club. And of course, you can watch it in your home, as your own Interactive Civics Lesson. There will even be a live online chat as part of the event. And they would love to hear your students' reactions afterward; you may send those to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
