Black Out Speak Out: Fighting for Nature and Democracy
A symbolic protest was held by a coalition of non-profit environmental groups today. They are blacking out their websites in opposition to proposed changes in the federal government's sweeping budget bill.

How might proposed changes affect your favorite charitable groups?
