Finally! A powerful organization exists that acts as a "loudspeaker" to make your voice heard in Congress. TrueMajority is a grassroots education and advocacy project of Priorities, Inc., a non-profit organization founded by Ben Cohen, Co-founder of Ben and Jerry's. TrueMajority sifts through all the stuff going on. When your voice counts to create a just and sustainable world, you get an email alert. Then just by clicking one button a fax is sent to your congressperson in your name. It takes about 2 minutes a month and it's free. To register, go to

TrueMajority's underlying philosophy is contained in the TrueMajority Principles, a positive blueprint for moving forward in the post Sept. 11th world. These principles reflect the American values of compassion, charity and justice--the same values we must adhere to in order to build a safer, more secure home and world. These principles are also revenue-neutral, meaning the investments proposed are entirely funded by reductions in unnecessary spending on Cold War-era weapons that no longer contribute to our national security.

The 10 principles that guide TrueMajority are as follows:

1. Attack poverty and world hunger as if our life depends on it. It does.

2. Champion the rights of every child, woman and man.

3. End our obstructionism to the world's treaties.

4. Reduce our dependence on oil and lead the world to an age of renewable energy.

5. Close the book on the Cold War and ease the nuclear nightmare.

6. Renounce Star Wars and the militarization of space.

7. Make globalization work for, not against, working people.

8. Ensure equal treatment under law for all.

9. Get money out of politics.

10. Close the gap between rich and poor kids at home.

TrueMajority's principles are endorsed by Greenpeace, Rock the Vote, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Peace Action, the National Head Start Association, Global Exchange, The Interfaith Alliance, The Nation magazine, Sojourners, Rainforest Action Network, Women's Action for New Directions (WAND), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), National Council of La Raza, and a long and growing list of Americans.

Once you register at, you can go to their "Take Action" section and send faxes on the issues you care about to members of Congress and national leaders. After you register, they will also send you email alerts on critical issues. With one click of a button you can either send their suggested faxes or edit them yourself (and they will still send them for you.) Faxes have been found to be much more effective than simply sending emails or signing petitions. You are always free not to participate in any specific issue or remove your name from the list.

Priorities Inc. is comprised of the following 4 entities:

1) Military Advisory Committee - A dozen distinguished military analysts and experts on the subject of excess Pentagon spending.

2) Business Leaders for Sensible Priorities - a group of 500 corporate leaders including the current or former Chairpersons or CEOs of many large companies

3) Religious Leaders for Sensible Priorities - leading religious leaders of denominations representing 30 million Americans, including the Presbyterians, Methodists, Jews, Buddhists, National Baptists, and American Muslims

4) Entertainers for Sensible Priorities - world-renowned leaders from the creative community, including Paul Newman, Ted Turner, and others.
