“We heard you.”

Way back in June, I signed a petition sponsored by Passion Movement and the International Justice Mission, asking President Obama to take a stand against slavery. To be honest with you, although I have signed dozens of social-justice petitions this year, I have never really believed that they have much impact–especially since I usually never hear about the petition again after I’ve signed it.

That all changed yesterday when I received an email that began with this phrase:

“I want you to know that we heard you.”

The email continued on to thank me for signing that petition way back in June, and to let me know that President Obama will be speaking up on the issue of human trafficking TODAY. I now have a newly discovered belief in the power of “petition-signing.”

Join me TODAY at 12pm Eastern, 11am Central, 9am Pacific, and watch President Obama deliver his speech on human trafficking LIVE by clicking here. I hope you are excited as I am to hear what he has to say on this issue.
