Spending Another Labor Day away from Family

Every Labor Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving spent in prison away from friends and family hurts. This is because time with family is so vital to the heart. This is true for all prisoners, guilty and innocent, and especially for our friend, the former Governor Siegelman.


While Governor Siegelman is known as a friend to education, it is good to remember on Labor Day that he was also a friend to labor. He stood on the shoulders of Jim Folsom in building Alabama into a car manufacturing center, called by some the Detroit of the South. For a while, when Don was governor, automotive plants were moving to Alabama in record numbers as he tried to bring jobs to Alabama.


Celebrate Labor Day by signing Dana’s petition for her dad! Carry us forward toward the goal of 100,000 signatures! We only need another 23,000 to reach our goal of 100,000!

Ask your friends. Ask your neighbors. Ask your family.

This Labor Day weekend, as you lift a glass to the American workers who have so faithfully contributed to our extraordinary material quality of life, as you enjoy your rich time with family and friends, take a minute to make a difference. If you know someone that cares for justice, ask them to sign the petition!

As we near November and soon following the election, we will be asking each of you to call, write, or visit with your members of Congress in order to push President Obama to do just that. And we will also be asking for contributions to Dana’s travel expenses to D.C.

But our first efforts are to reach 100,000 signatures before November 8th and that’s a big job! If you have not signed one of Dana’s petitions, please do so. If you have already signed, please ask a sympathetic friend to sign. (See the “Forward to a Friend” button at the bottom of the page.)

Thank you again for your friendship, and please keep the Siegelman’s in your prayers as we move forward with these final efforts.
