Our students and families are realizing unprecedented levels of success on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Read our story, and cheer us on!
I’m trying to make charity donation a regular thing every couple months, and this time I wanted to help out an Indian reservation. Red Cloud Indian School was recommended to me by a friend, this school is part of a county that’s the 2nd poorest in the US, and kids living below the poverty line travel terribly far to get to school. Check out their website and help them out a bit if you’d like.
Hey, Im that friend! But seriously folks, I spent a week here and it was magnificent. They deserve any/all the help that they can get.
Please, DON’T sit back and think, “Oh, everyone else will sign it. I’ll just reblog.” No. There are literally THOUSANDS of people thinking the exact same thing. There’s a reason this post has almost 20,000 notes more than the number of signatures: It’s because people are liking and reblogging without signing it.
Don’t fall victim to the bystander effect. DO take this very, very seriously. The only requirement for signing is that you are 13 years or older. You don’t have to be a U.S. citizen to sign. So please, take the two minutes. Sign the petition. It’s the only hope we have to fix this.
“Protection against discrimination because of religion, in my view, must include protection of the applicants’ belief that there is no deity,” wrote David A. Wright, associate chair of the commission, in an August 13 decision.
The ruling was spurred by a complaint from self-described secular humanist Rene Chouinard, who was opposing the District School Board of Niagara’s policy regarding the distribution of Gideon bibles. (Photo: Glenn Lowson photo for National Post)
