A few Saturdays ago, I went to the Boston area OFAMA meeting to discuss how best to support & implement the administration’s healthcare, education, environmental/energy reform policies utilizing the organizing structure put in place by the Obama campaign. Yesterday afternoon, my local chapter met to concentrate on healthcare. There will be a healthcare “Day of Service” on June 27th. More information to come…
Last week I met with Mark Gallagher, staff assistant to Rep. Edward Markey as part of a group sponsored by moveon.org to discuss the coming Waxman-Markey Energy Reform Bill . We were asking Markey to keep the bill as strong as possible and resist attempts to water down the bill. Contact Markey’s office with support & comments: 781-396-2900 (Medford) 508-875-2900 (Framingham) or 202-225-2836 (DC).

For the second year, I intend to honor Earth Hour this Saturday night,
March 28th at 8:30pm local time. The goal this year is 1 billion participants turning off all lights as acknowledgement of the seriousness of Global Warming. Last year I took a moonlit walk that hour. It was a profoundly moving experience and reminder of what we take for granted and what we have to lose.

On March 2nd, I participated in a successful climate action in Washington, DC, to protest and ultimately close down the coal burning power plant powering our own Capitol Hill, walking distance from the National Mall!  More photos here. [My own photos to come soon].

See organizer Joshua Kahn Russell’s blog post about the action here, and another  blog post  Report-Back: Capitol Climate Action on smartmeme.org.

“WE SHUT THEM DOWN!”

Josh posted 13 related videos about the action on current tv here.
