Activist Groups Urge Obama to Reject Boy Scout Honor
From Fox News:
Activist groups, including Scouting for All, urge President Obama not to accept the honorary Presidency of the Boy Scouts of America until they stop discriminating.
Scouting for All is a 100% Volunteer 501-(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization. Every dollar donated goes toward our education and advocacy programs, and is tax deductible.
Action Alert: It is Not to Late Please Call United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta
July 17, 2005
The United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta will be deciding this Friday (July 15) whether to give nearly a million
dollars to the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts, after an audit revealed widespread fraud of 'phantom units'
to inflate the number of boys supposedly helped by UW funding.
By doing this for years, the Atlanta Area Council drew money away from other youth programs that applied for the
same funding. Tell the United Way that granting the BSA funding after such a pattern of fraud only rewards dishonesty.

As the meeting is tomorrow, letters would not get there in time. Since the UW is run by volunteers, email to the
UW address may not get to the recipient in time. Phone calls to the main UW number appear to be the best way for
public feedback on the vote.
