Use this link to contact your officials http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml . Darby and Eagle Feather explain that many poor people and those with serious mental illnesses and addictions are deliberately rendered homeless in the United States of America. Sick people are deprived of psychiatric and medical health care services that would help them avoid imprisonment and harm while our communities are less safe than they could be. This is unacceptable. Voters should petition elected officials to improve treatment and subsistence opportunities. Contact Mary Neal, station director, at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com or call 678.531.0262.
