Recently, the American people spoke up about SOPA. It was a bad bill, harmful to many and people flooded their Senators with phone calls, emails, and internet social media sites were buzzing.
The bill was removed.
Then, the Komen Foundation removed funding from Planned Parenthood under a thinly disguised "new policy" that somehow only applied to PP and not several other corporations who were under investigation also.
The people called bullshit and flooded Komen with phone calls, emails and the social media sites went crazy with support for Planned Parenthood.
The funding was reinstated.
Now, a group called One Million Moms has demanded that JC Penney fire Ellen Degeneres as their spokesperson because she is gay. Penney's, to it's credit, immediately told them NO.
Finally, a company that stands up to bullies.
Penney's has received emails and phone calls thanking them for their stand. Social media is buzzing.
Do you feel your power, people?
A few clicks on your computer. A simple phone call. Your voice is heard.
Don't be silent. Don't say your lone voice won't make a difference. That's the idea we've been fed to make us feel powerless, to make us believe we can't make change.
But the past few weeks have shown us that we can.
Drown out the bullies. Speak out!
