To Orwell Today,

To Whom It May Concern:

I enjoy your site very much and have often used it as reference on the topic of children's rights.

I recently got this petition going in support of the bill linked below that would require federal regulation of such programs. I hoped that, of course, you would sign and also help spread the word and get more signatures on the petition by placing the link on your website.

Bill link: 109th Congress, H.R. 1738:
To assure the safety of American children in foreign-based and domestic institutions, and for...
Introduced: Apr 19, 2005
Sponsor: Rep. George Miller [D-CA]
Status: Introduced (By Rep. George Miller [D-CA])
Last Action: Apr 19, 2005: Referred to House International Relations

Petition link: Petition for the passage of the End Institutionalized Abuse Against Children Act of 2005

Thanks so much and please donít hesitate to contact me with further questions or comments. Please keep up the great work on the site. You donít know how important it is to someone like me (and Iím sure plenty others) to have someone who is explicitly supportive and an organizer for a cause that all too often goes ignored by the public.

Greetings Kathryn,

Thank you for letting me know you've found Orwell Today helpful in your work for children's rights and for sending the links to the bill and the petition.

I am not a citizen of the United States and so am not part of "the undersigned" on the petition.

I just finished reading the bill and it sounds very good and it will be interesting to watch its progress through Congress. I hope it makes it all the way and its policies are implemented right away.

All the best,
Jackie Jura
