To Do

561. Lobby for more women on U.S. currency

It’s an important recognition of what women have contributed to the United States.

542. Cast a write-in vote

Voting for a political party is almost meaningless. Vote for a candidate instead. One you believe in.

532. Stop a mall from being built

Updated January 1, 2010 I love shopping as much as the next girl, but as a small business owner myself, I much prefer supporting small businesses to supporting large national chains and big box stores. In the end, my shopping trip is a lot better when I find a boutique owner whose taste I trust […]

372. Partake in a demonstration

Updated November 18, 2009 I’m reading a book about Ghandi right now and am really beginning to appreciate the power of nonviolence and civil disobedience. There are so many things in this world that I believe in, that I’d be willing to stand up for, that I’d be willing to hold up a sign and […]

208. Run for office

Completed April 1987 and May 1997 I didn’t really specify “public office” when I wrote this on the list, so I’m counting the two times I ran for student goverment. In junior high school, I campaigned for a seat in the student goverment. I lost, because, of course, student goverment elections are nothing more than […]

73. Start a new political party

It’s not a new political party that we need. We need to not have political parties.

43. Lobby

We all have a responsibility to do what we can to make the world a better place.

18. Learn the constitution and all the amendments

In current times, it’s especially important to know what rights our Constitution guarantees us.
