Yes We Did! So Now What?

With record youth voter turnout in the 2008 election, it is clear that in our demographic, the tide is turning swiftly towards action and a mutual interest in a better world. Now is a crucial time to keep pushing ahead with the causes about which you care most deeply.

While you may not be able to score any one-on-one time with the president-elect right now (something tells me he's a little busy), you can certainly send him a message through one of the many organizations working hard to get Obama's attention about causes running the gamut from global warming to gay rights.

In addition to signing and forwarding online petitions about causes that align with your personal beliefs, why not send the Obama-Biden transition team an email? I believed Obama in his acceptance speech on Tuesday night when he said he wanted to hear from us about what was most important, and I think we should do just that.

Here is the link for contacting the team.

After all, political action is about much more than casting your vote.
