I am blogging instead of forwarding, because we have too many friends in common on the Care2 sight. The way that I see it--it is far likely to expand the list of possible signers if I blog instead. After all, this way even those who are not yet members of Care2 can sign and not just the members of Care2. 

I am also including this petition. This one is just as important if not, dare I say even more important since it concerns children.

 Talking out of turn. Saying bad words. Giggling in class. When in the classroom, these are all behaviors that can get kids sent to the principal's office. But in Mississippi, they can get children sent to jail. »
Schoolchildren, particularly children of color, are being repeatedly imprisoned for minor infractions. According to the US Department of Justice, schools' emphases on severe punishments have created a "school-to-prison pipeline." Students who get in trouble for things like verbal disobedience could now end up in prison.

The DOJ report focuses specifically on Lauderdale County, Mississippi, where teachers and principals place children at the mercy of a corrupt criminal justice system for infractions as small as dress-code violations, “flatulence, profanity and disrespect.” 
Can you imagine acquiring a criminal record for something like a dress-code violation? When will this absurdity stop?

Tell Mississippi to stop unjustly imprisoning schoolchildren immediately. »
