Midwest Pages to Prisoners

Websitehttps://pagestoprisoners.org
AddressPO Box 1324
Bloomington, IN 47402
Description
The Midwest Pages to Prisoners Project is an all-volunteer effort that strives to encourage self-education among prisoners in the United States.
 
By providing free reading materials upon request, we hope to promote critical thinking behind bars. We develop relationships so people on the outside can better understand and combat the injustices faced by folks who are incarcerated. We are aware the prison industrial complex targets People of Color, in poverty, and in the LGBTQ+ community.
 
The project exists to alleviate a lot of the pain caused by the criminal justice system, and to provide a direct opportunity for self-education and collective struggle. Additionally, we exist because prison libraries sometimes fail in this respect: they are understocked or are only able to be patronized during specific and limited hours. We exist because prisoners are not strangers: they are brothers sisters, friends, cousins, mothers, and children.

Move To Amend

Websitehttps://movetoamend.org/in-bloomington
AddressBloomington, IN
Description

On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.

We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United and other related cases, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.

Philanthropy for America (PFA) is a visionary 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists to enlist, equip and empower the next generation of Millennial leaders across Indiana and the United States through training, coaching, experiential learning and public service so that they would be empowered to impact their societies.

Founded in 2016 by American Educator Roy Y. Chan, our mission is to develop, instill and cultivate a philanthropic culture among the Millennial generation by enlisting talented and passionate college graduates and young professionals to work for two years as PFA Fellows at a non-governmental, non-profit organization-PFA Partnered Organization-in the United States and to strengthen the movement for employment equity and income equality. In return the PFA Partnered Organization receives 15 percent of the PFA Fellow's monthly salary used to support the company's mission and/or charitable giving activities in the organization.

Philanthropy for America (PFA) aspires to help employers and consumers recruit, train and hire Millennials  (age 18-34) in the 21st century by developing a platform for companies to hire recent college graduates and young adults toward a career in business, education, development, management, social work, technology, among others. We seek to be a leading source of young philanthropists, social entrepreneurs and humanitarians who compensate their time and wealth that best serves local, national and/or international communities.
