The establishment of the interagency Atrocities Prevention Board (APB) last year by the Obama administration was an important milestone in developing a comprehensive policy framework to prevent future atrocities. We congratulate the President's administration for taking this on and encourage them to move it now even further into fruition. While there is continual progress, they are well behind their promised deadlines on some key implementation. We need to encourage further progress. Sign Petition today!

"Since the Civil War, America has recreated a virulent economic dynamic the likes of which, in part, we fought a War of Independence to be free of: A veritable aristocracy that, in keeping with its own self-declared entitlement, takes for the most part whatever it wants, and leaves the rest to us."
