california fails again
At a last minute press meeting California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, decided to cut ALL of the state's funding for domestic violence shelters. Catalyst's, a DV Shelter that relies heavily on state funding to operate, Executive Director Anastacia Snyder states, "We were bracing for the 20 percent cut, but did not believe the governor could, with a clear conscience, cut 100 percent of funding for services that keep women and children safe and alive."

It is unbelievable how quickly decisions like this can be made. What is more astonishing to me, is that in order for this to go into effect numerous people had to agree upon the cut. I cannot believe that the government in California cannot see how detrimental this will be for all of California's residents.

If you know anyone who is a California resident, send them here to sign a petition to urge CA lawmakers to reinstate the funding :
