Sunday 9/15: It’s going to be a busy week! Write a comment, write some postcards, come out for “Climate Strike” & “We the People” – 4 actions for Citizenry v.21.0!

Monday 9/16: Deadline to write a comment opposing this anti-American rule. Protect your family, friends and fellow citizens from taxpayer-funded zealotry. 

America has a long history of slip-sliding towards religious intolerance, but common sense, and our Constitution, has kept us away from that abyss, allowing us to become the most powerful country in the world. Now, the Trump Administration, pandering to their far-right supporters, wants to allow a vastly expandable group of government contractors to discriminate for “religious” reasons against our fellow taxpaying citizens, including our LGBTQ community, women and religious minorities, on what are essentially private matters that are NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS.  

Monday, 11:59 pm EST, is the deadline to write your comment(s) to protect your family, friends and fellow Americans from the disease of taxpayer-funded religious discrimination in our work places. Read our posting on this issue here for more information and inspiration.

Comment here!

  • The proposed regulation is here.
  • Other people’s comments are here. Read for inspiration. Don’t copy. Identical comments and signatures on petitions will only count as (1) total comment.

(From Katie Eder, the 19-year old leader of Future Coalition)

“Too often, we think about solutions in a very small-minded way, inside the box, way. We don’t have time to stay in the box. We need to be more innovative with our solutions and ask for what we need, not what we think could be possible or has been possible in the past.

We Demand:

  • A Green New Deal that immediately halts all new fossil fuel projects and transitions our economy to 100% renewable energy by 2030.
  • Respect of Indigenous lands and sovereignty — the US government must halt all resource extraction on or affecting Indigenous lands, and recognize the Rights of Nature into law.
  • Environmental justice for communities on the frontlines of poverty and pollution, and sanctuary for all migrants.
  • Protect and restore 50% of the world’s lands and oceans; stop all deforestation by 2030.
  • Invest in sustainable agriculture, not agribusiness.

We know what we’re asking for goes beyond the scope of what’s been achieved so far, but that’s precisely why we’re demanding it. We have just 11 years left to cut global emissions in half, and to do that, we need to work together to make these demands a reality .

If you’re ready to start fighting for these demands, sign up to join a Climate Strike event where you live.

Our only hope of achieving the sweeping transformation we need to save our futures is with the power of a mass movement. That movement that has existed in the US for decades is unifying and growing right now. People in over 100 countries are mobilizing for the Climate Strike — and over 500 US locations in all 50 states, as well as Puerto Rico and Guam, are joining in on the action.

Together, we are the hope for a different future than the one fossil fuel billionaires want to condemn us to. We still have the power to create the change we need, but only if we work together. That’s why we need you.

Forward,

Katie Eder – Future Coalition”

We the People are marching to be seen and heard. We are marching to remind our elect-ed of cials that they work for us. We are marching because the current regime is a threat to our democracy and values. We are marching to demand action. Silence and inaction are complicity.
