On September 15, 2008, Oprah asked for your help in urging Congress to pass the PROTECT Our Children Act, to dramatically increase funding to fight Internet predators. Nearly a half-million people came to Oprah.com to make their voices heard...and it worked!
"Last night, in the midst of this economic crisis, Senate Bill 1738, the PROTECT Our Children Act, passed the Senate," Oprah says. "Thank you to the 60 senators—Republican and Democrat—who co-sponsored the bill. ... All of you proved that the people can really make a difference."
