Who to contact to stand with Justina
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the unbelievable but true story of Justina Pellitier. A child was kidnapped by the government. It’s even harder to wrap your head around this when you realize that this isn’t an isolated incident. Americans can’t take this sitting down if there is any hope for freedom in this country to be saved. Many of us feel inadequate for activism. We’re just regular moms and dads trying to survive. So were the Founders.
There’s always something each of us can do – especially in this age of the information super highway. Here is a list of people you can contact to help Justina, the other children being held, and all of us who value freedom.
Connecticut: The Pellitier family lives in Connecticut. State representatives haven’t lifted a finger to help them. Maybe if enough people ask them why they’ll do what the right thing and represent the people of their state.
Connecticut Governor Daniel Malloy – http://www.ct.gov/malloy/cwp/view.asp?a=3998&q=479082
Connecticut State Congressmen – https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/CT
Massachusetts: The family’s nightmare is compliments of the State of Massachusetts.
