In these changing times it has become so important to remain politically active, stay informed, hold our politicians and corporations accountable, and keep on top of our representatives to make sure they are representing our best interests. Please, support the actions and issues that matter to YOU.
I will do my best to keep up with what is happening in our government and post the latest petitions and calls to action. Please, check in daily.

Send a message to Pepsi, Disney, and Gap that if they are serious about climate action they must drop the Chamber of Commerce!
Last week, Donald Trump backed out of the Paris Climate Agreement.
As Trump turned his back on future generations, he justified his decision by citing a garbage study funded by the notoriously anti-environment U.S. Chamber of Commerce. 1
The Chamber is able to fund climate denial in part because companies like Pepsi, Disney, and Gap give it financial support. They fund the Chamber despite their public stances in favor of the Paris Climate Agreement and climate action.
It is time for these companies to put their money where they claim their values are. After Trump's announcement, Disney CEO Bob Iger resigned from Donald Trump's business advisory council2, Gap made a commitment to continue to act on climate3, and Pepsi said it was disappointed with the president's announcement.4
These are all important steps, but they are not enough. It's clear that the Chamber is a danger to our clean air, clean water, and now in the face of Trump's announcement, to America's leadership role on climate action.
Let's make sure Pepsi, Disney, and Gap know that consumers say actions speak louder than words.
