Please help Lori Berenson

This week, in addition to calling your Representatives in Congress to ask them to sign on to the Maloney Dear Colleague letter, please send an email to the Peruvian Embassy. President-elect will be in the United States this week, and we want to make sure that he knows how important it is that Lori be released. Go to and take an action for Lori. Thanks to the Digital Freedom Network for setting up this email campaign.
