It is time to call your Congressman!

Dear DonorDreams subscriber:

On Monday, Marissa Garza used her “Mondays with Marissa” column on DonorDreams to post an article titled “How Can SOPA/PIPA Affect Non-Profits?” to educate all of us about the impact these two pieces of legislation could have on our agencies.

Regardless of whether or not you believe this is a big deal for the non-profit sector, I can’t help but come to the conclusion that censorship in any form that is directed at anyone is an assault on all of us.  Jeremy Bentham said it best:

“As to the evil which results from a censorship, it is impossible to measure it, for it is impossible to tell where it ends.”

As many of you know, countless internet sites are participating in a day long blackout on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 to protest this legislation and educate the public about the dangers of passing it. DonorDreams blog will be one of those sites who participates. So, you will not be receiving an email delivering any DonorDreams content in the morning.
Regardless of whether or not you support this legislation, please take a moment out of your day to learn more about it by visiting americancensorship.org. If you don’t believe that you’ll get unbiased information from this site, then please Google the search words “SOPA” and “PIPA” and sift through a number of different links.
Here’s to your health!
