Attention Southern Californians:

Walter Moore (L.A. Mayoral Candidate) is planning a signature gathering drive during what he is calling an Hour of Power on Sat. Aug. 16th. The ultimate goal, of course, is to get 70,000 plus signatures to put Jamiel's Law on the ballot.

OK, here's what we need to do: Just show up and help out. If you are a Los Angeles City resident, you can help obtain signatures. If you're not (i.e. in the OC, Ventura, Santa Clarita, etc.) there is nothing to prevent you from helping out. Wave a U.S. flag or signs/help draw the attention of passersby, hand out info pamphlets (that can be downloaded from Moore's site), etc. I intend to simply go and wave a couple of those signs I had made up b/c they're colorful and eye-catching, and then direct people to the tables/desks where the Moore folks will be getting signatures.

It's only an hour out of your life (not including travel time) and, during my two years involved with The Cause, it is the most organized thing in opposition to illegal immigration that has occurred locally and not only involves us NMI, SOS, CCIR and MM folks. Lots of the general public is down with this, as well.

If anyone needs a few signs, send me a PM. I still have some (Amend Special Order 40) left and am having the printer I used before make some new (different) ones that will be available next week. My job involves a lot of travel. I will get them to you; you just have to ask.

And not that anyone cares, but I intend to cover the Westchester spot.
