“This is a book that should be in the hands of every activist working on food and farming, climate change, and the Green New Deal.” —Vandana Shiva, scientist, environmentalist, social activist; author of Earth Democracy, Soil Not Oil, and Stolen Harvest
At our general meeting of 8/4/2019, OCA members in attendance adopted by consensus this statement in support of the concept of a green new deal. We have little time to waste and urge immediate action at all levels, but most particularly at the federal level, which will ultimately be necessary if we’re to avoid unimaginable climate chaos.
From Mike Ferguson, Sunrise Olympic Peninsula Hub coordinator:
Whew! February was a very busy month for Sunrise and the Green New Deal! Please take a moment to read our updates and commit to the simple actions we are asking of the community. Here is a summary of what has happened locally and across the country this past month and what is coming up this month.
OCA members delivered our own letter to Kilmer and described the promise offered by the Green New Deal to remake the Lower Snake River watershed into a showcase for clean energy, green jobs, restorative agriculture, recreation, and carbon sequestration, rather than a cesspool for salmon mortality and methane production.
Then, the new Sunrise Movement Olympic Peninsula hub hosted a meeting at Kilmer’s office to express concern that our Representative has had several months to ponder what Congress should be doing to solve the climate crisis, and has yet to speak or act. Time to step up!
Both groups asked to meet with Kilmer next time he’s home.
