Rainn action alert

If anyone is interested, after I sponsored my friend in the blogathon for RAINN, I was subscribed to their e-newsletter, and this alert came today (blurb is mine, from my personal journal):

Phone your Senators/Congressional reps to encourage funding for rape crisis centers. To me, this is one of the basic, fundamental responsibilities of a government - protecting people's rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (i.e. not to be raped or assaulted, and to have legal recourse when it happens). This is what the U.S. government was originally supposed to do in the Constitution.
