America's Top Ideas; Death Row Exonerations; Future of Wind Power
Congress has recently shown that there is no problem too large for continued partisan bickering.
But where our politicians are failing, citizens are stepping in. Over the past month, 100,000 of you have participated in an open, democratic framework to suggest, debate, and vote on the best Ideas for Change in America on Change.org.
Your ideas continue to flood in, from creating new jobs that add social value, to addressing the crisis in food access and obesity, to reinvigorating our civic life. This broad, grassroots participation and constructive debate demonstrates that whatever happens in Washington, people across the country haven't given up their hope for a better future or a willingness to fight for the change they believe in.
First round voting ends this Thursday afternoon, and the final round will begin next week. To become part of the largest citizen-driven project to identify the top ideas for change across the country, go to www.change.org/ideas.
For news and commentary from your favorite causes from the past week, see the summaries below.
