Petition Closed

Because contraception is at least five times as cost-effective as any other environmental program, and probably many times that, all environmental and alternative energy funds in the budgets of all levels of government, especially municipalities, should be transferred to contraception funding immediately.  This being paid contraception if funds remain after free contraception has been provided, and not limited to residents of the locality or state involved.

The reason MUNICIPAL environmental contraception funding has heightened importance is a polysci megatrend called The Big Sort, where like minded voters, like overpopulataion activists, are concentrating into local majorities, which turns national minorities into local majorities and makes more and more cost-effective causes, including overpopulation, politically realistic on the local level; and because mayors are not answerable to rural voters, unlike presidents and governors.  Sadly, the major overpopulation, contraception and choice movements have badly neglected local government.  This is in addition to the fact that local government funding is heavy on schools and childcare, where federal funding is heavy on retirement, which is the one economic problem not solved by contraception.

In answer to a question;  The petition automatically sends E-mails to YOUR state and federal representatives, but it cannot look up your city, town or county representatives who are the most important recipients, as it is they who benefit most from The Big Sort.  I was able to program it to send E-mails to mayors or vice mayors in Asheville NC, near me, and Santa Cruz CA, which is my best guess as to the US city with the highest percentage of overpopulation activists.  But I cannot easily look up your city, town or county leaders and niether can Change.org, so it would help if you did that part yourselves.  However Googling the name of the locality usually produces a local government website with the contact information, so it's not too hard if you're already on the web.
