Fwd: Remove the Confederate flag

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Karen Hunter, a fellow MoveOn member, and I started a petition to the South Carolina Legislature and Governor Nikki Haley.

On the heels of the brutal killing of nine black people in a South Carolina church, it's time to put a symbol of rebellion and racism behind us and move toward healing and a better United States of America.1 Can you join me in telling South Carolina lawmakers:

Symbols of hate and division have no place in our government. It's time to stand up for what's right and take down the Confederate flag!

The Confederate flag is not a symbol of southern pride but rather a symbol of rebellion and racism.

Tell South Carolina lawmakers: Symbols of hate have no place in our government.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.




1. "The Charleston shooting is the largest mass shooting in a house of worship since 1991," The Washington Post, June 18, 2015

This petition was created on MoveOn's online petition site, where anyone can start their own online petitions. Karen Hunter didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the list.

Fwd: Looking for Affordable Housing? Beware of Section 8 Scams

Looking for Affordable Housing? Beware of Section 8 Scams

Phony Waiting Lists Take Fees; The Real Ones Never Do

If you know someone who needs public housing assistance, make sure he or she knows about the Section 8 housing scams that prey on home-seekers. The scams use websites that look like registration sites for Section 8 waiting list lotteries. They take people's "registration fee" money, their personal information, and their chance to register for the real lottery—since these hopefuls usually don't know they've been scammed until the real waiting list is closed.

There is never a fee to register for a real Section 8 waiting list. To sign up for one, contact your local public housing authority.

And for more information on finding an affordable home, visit our new "beta" site—a work in progress!
