Students Wanted: Help Sue the Government

Via TalkLeft:
Students for a Sensible Drug Policy and the ACLU are seeking plaintiffs for a lawsuit challenging the Government's ban on student aid for those with a drug conviction.

If you or someone you know has lost their financial aid because of the HEA drug provision, please get in touch with them as soon as possible. Here's a full list of the more than 250 organizations that have called for a repeal of the aid ban.

Please raise your voice and be counted.

The ban has kept 175,000 people from moving on with their lives. These sorts of laws are the worst sort, they brand a person forever for an offense of their childhood. If any students reading this were denied federal aid because of this provision, click the links.
