Tell the CA Coastal Commission not to dump nuclear waste on San Diego's beaches. Environmental activists in California are fighting plans to store 3.6 million pounds of highly radioactive nuclear waste on a popular beach in San Diego County. Let's help them out and call or write the California Coastal Commission (that issued the permit for this) and tell them what we think!
CALL Director of CCC Jack Ainsworth at (415) 904-5202, write, or go to the CCC's web comments page and say "we don't want radioactive waste on California beaches! We are supposed to be leading the way to a greener world!”
50 STATES FOR MONTANA
Right now, Montanans are voting in a special House election this Thursday, May 25th to replace Republican Ryan Zinke, who joined the Trump administration. Democrat Rob Quist has an incredible chance to win this special election and flip our first House seat, but it’s going to come down to the wire. Republicans are pouring money into this race, which could be a deciding factor in the AHCA Health Care vote. But we're going to out-organize them!
Attend or host a call-bank house party from anywhere today or tomorrow.
4 NEW YORK ACTIONS
1. IN LONG ISLAND? VOTE TODAY! Our allies are supporting Christine Pellegrino for State Assembly in the District 9 special election.
2. SUPPORT SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE IN NY
A Single Payer Health Care Bill has passed the New York Assembly and moved on to the State Senate. The New York State Senate is Republican majority and is unlikely to pass progressive measures like this, but with enough pressure from New Yorkers, there is a chance this might get this passed; the senate is two votes short- let's push it over.
Call your local senators, meet them in person, lobby them with a group. Encourage them to pass Single Payer Healthcare in New York.
3. SUPPORT THE 2017 LOFT LAW CLEANUP BILL
Let the Mayor and Albany know that we must stem the tide of displacement and preserve live/work housing by strengthening the loft law to protect creative communities.
Attend the Rally for a Better Loft Law this Thursday, May 25th at 7pm, 85 North 15th Street, Brooklyn
Call your elected officials and tell them that the Loft Law is part of the solution to the affordability crisis that plagues our city.
