Letters to PERM
Editor's note: We often get letters and notes of encouragement from our members, supporters and readers. The following are a sample of the correspondence we've received over the past few months.
I believe that we are one nation, indivisible, under God, with liberty and justice for all.

P.S. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for defending our rights.
Dear PERM Board of Directors,
As a member of PERM I have gone to many functions but my wife and I feel we should be doing more. There is no organization that has worked to defend our rights harder than what PERM has done. We feel that once we can put the ledger on the positive side again, a lot more can be accomplished.
For this reason we put our energies to work for PERM in a different way. We raised and sold a litter of prize English Setter hunting dogs and are donating the net proceeds to PERM. So please accept this check for $2,400, an extra $100 being added to see of I can buy one of those rods and reels, as I sure can't seem to win one. Thanks for working to defend our rights.

P.S. Mary deserves a lot of credit raising the pups.
...a Nation of many cultures may be one People...
As a representative of the Citizens Equal Rights Alliance (CERA), I'd like to thank you for your generous gift of $250 toward our fund-raising efforts.
Federal policies currently deny millions of people living on or near Indian Reservations their full constitutional rights. It is therefore CERA's mission to advocate equal protection of the law so that this nation of many cultures may be one People, living under one system of laws.
Your gift will help make it possible to:
- Guarantee constitutional and civil rights for Indian Americans.
- Protect all who live on or near Indian Reservations from discrimination by the United States, State and tribal laws and policies.
- Ensure the right to own private property on or near Indian Reservations.
- Ensure the fair administration of natural resources on public lands for the general welfare of all citizens.
We appreciate your continued support, and we'll keep you updated on our progress.
