Dear Susan,

We've done it. You, and more than 250,000 citizens signed a petition demanding that President Bush fire Secretary of Education Rod Paige for accusing teachers of belonging to a "terrorist organization."

Today, we will deliver the petition with all of your individual comments included to the White House.

And to make sure that Rod Paige and the administration get the message, we launched a month-long ad campaign at bus stops and subway stations all around the Department of Education headquarters in Washington, DC.

For this campaign to be a success, we need your help. We need to raise $30,000 in the next 48 hours to fund the campaign. For every $2 that you contribute, we will give an additional $1. Donations of any amount will be a great help please give whatever you can. Even as little as $10 would make a real difference.

Contributing is easy. Just click on the link below and make a donation through our secure server. And best of all, your donation is completely tax deductible.

We'll be back in touch with you soon with an update!

Thank you for standing up for America's teachers and school children.

Ads Surround Department of Education
Please help us show the Bush administration what we think about their threats and failed promises on education. We plan to post huge ads at bus stops and subway stations all around the Department of Education headquarters in Washington, DC.

Thank you for your generous contribution. Your tax-deductible donation, and the donations of thousands of others, will make possible the ad campaign to demand accountability and leadership from the Bush team on education.

The ads will put a public face on the over 250,000 citizens, like you, who believe the President should fire Education Secretary Rod Paige for saying that America's teachers belong to a 'terrorist organization,' instead of listening to teachers and fulfilling president Bush's promise on education.

On behalf of the Institute for America's Future and our ally organizations in this effort, MoveOn.org and TomPaine.com, thank you for standing up for America's teachers and school children. We are deeply grateful for your support.

Yours truly,

Robert L. Borosage Roger Hickey
