Citizens in Charge Foundation - PAUL JACOB

Paul Jacob, President Paul Jacob, a leading national figure in the pro initiative, referendum and recall process is president of Citizens in Charge Foundation. The Foundation, and its partner organization, Citizens in Charge, are the only national organizations dedicated to protecting and expanding the initiative and referendum rights of every American without regard to partisanship or politics. A multi-media commentator, Jacob hosts an online and print opinion program, Common Sense, which reaches a growing list of nearly 20,000 e-mail subscribers. Paul is an activist and defender of citizen rights, having been involved in more citizen initiative campaigns than anyone in U.S. history. He has helped organize over 150 state-wide petition drives in 47 states on various issues. He has also been a party to dozens of lawsuits defending citizens’ rights to petition their government. In 2005, Jacob assisted Oklahoma residents with a ballot initiative to cap state spending. In 2007, Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmonson charged Paul and two fellow activists (The Oklahoma Three) with a felony for allegedly hiring out-of-state petitioners, even though Oklahoma leadership of the initiative had consulted with state officials and followed their advice. Facing a possibility of 10 years in prison, and against the advice of attorneys, Paul did not remain silent. Instead, he spoke out strongly against the AG’s “politically-motivated” prosecution, rallying Oklahomans and citizens nationwide against the increasing criminalization of the political process. Paul launched a website - FreePaulJacob.com - to chronicle the case, receiving wide-spread support. In January 2009, the charges against Paul and The Oklahoma Three were finally dropped. Pulitzer-Prize winning columnist Paul Greenburg wrote, “The best way to assure freedom of expression, no matter where it may be threatened, would be to have an army of utterly determined Paul Jacobs fighting for it.” Also in 2009, Paul was awarded the “Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire Award” from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for his commitment to citizen-led reform and his fight to uphold initiative rights in Oklahoma. The award is presented to an individual who has stood for principle even when doing so puts them at risk physically, politically or economically. Paul has been named “a rising star in politics” by Campaigns & Elections magazine, received the Society for Individual Liberty’s “Phoenix Award” for “contributions to the advancement of liberty in America,” and was dubbed one of “The Best and the Rightest” by National Journal. Paul currently writes a weekly column for Townhall.com. In addition, Paul’s writing has been featured in USA Today, New York Daily News, Roll Call, The Washington Times and The Chicago Tribune. His political work has been the focus of articles in the Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, Forbes Magazine and New York Times. He is a frequent guest on talk radio and has made appearances on all the major television networks. For more than a decade, Paul was the term limits movement’s leading voice, running U.S. Term Limits, the nation’s largest term limits group. For his work on the issue, columnist Robert Novak good-naturedly called Jacob “the most hated man in Washington.” In the 1980s, Paul started a pro-volunteer military, anti-draft group called Volunteers for America and served jail time for refusing to register for the draft as a matter of conscience.

Liberty Initiative Fund - Paul Jacob

Our Mission To rally Americans to restore greater citizen control of government by assisting citizens in taking the initiative or referendum or recall process to increase our liberty especially by placing measures on state and local ballots. Liberty Initiative Fund projects focus primarily in three areas: (1) Holding Government Accountable, (2) Fighting Crony Capitalism, and (3) Protecting Our Liberties. Our Issues We help people use the initiative process to increase liberty in their communities. Municipal initiatives offer a unique opportunity to offer principled common sense legislation directly to voters. Often the signature requirements are low enough to keep expenses minimal yet using the process can be a challenge for the inexperienced. Liberty Initiative Fund has been working directly with the municipal initiative past two years. We’re now seeking opportunities at the municipal level to further these issues:

Frontline Producer Miri Navasky

Miri Navasky is an award-winning documentary filmmaker who began her career in television when she joined FRONTLINE in 1991. While on staff, she worked on numerous films, including The Killer at Thurston High (2000), which she co-produced with Karen O’Connor. This 90-minute film examined the life of a 15-year-old school shooter in Oregon and won the Banff award for best social/political documentary. In 2000, Navasky left her staff position at FRONTLINE to form an independent production company, Mead Street Films. For over a decade, Navasky and O’Connor have defined themselves as filmmakers by their unique ability to take viewers into worlds that are seldom seen and to tell stories that are intimate, original and revealing. They have produced, directed and written a number of ground-breaking FRONTLINE documentaries, including The New Asylums (2005), a provocative and wrenching portrait of the hundreds of thousands of mentally ill people incarcerated in jails and prisons across the country. The film was nominated for an Emmy Award and in 2006 it won the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Grand Prize Journalism Award. Their other films include Living Old (2006), an honest and sometimes heartbreaking look at what it really means to grow old in contemporary America, and The Undertaking (2007), a lyrical and moving exploration of death and dying told through the perspective of writer/poet and undertaker Thomas Lynch. Praised by critics as “emotionally haunting” and “remarkably moving,” The Undertaking won the 2008 Emmy Award for Best Arts and Cultural Documentary. Facing Death (2010), described by the press as “a thoughtful, gripping hour of television,” explored the complex and difficult choices that Americans now face at the end of life. The Suicide Plan (2012), an Emmy-nominated journey inside the hidden world of assisted suicide, was described by the press as “moving,” “bold” and “eye-opening.” Navasky and O’Connor’s next film for FRONTLINE is Growing Up Trans, an intimate and unforgettable 90-minute exploration of the struggles and choices facing today’s transgender kids and their parents
