A few events taking place this week as listed on our “Community Calendar”. With the exception of the Yvonne McDonald march, all events are in Olympia.
Join a National Walkout from all work, waged and unwaged, on Thursday, October 4 at 4:00 pm to protest the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Gather at Percival Landing for rally and saying NO to patriarchy.
This workshop series is intended for people who want to learn about nonviolence as both ethical and practical, and people who want to learn how to organize effectively to create good solutions for our local community, our nation, and our world.
Join one of three candidates who are either progressive, independent, Democrat at the Tumwater Independence Day Parade. Victor will be sign waving and Tye and Tamborine will be in the parade. This is not a march. All participants have to be within a vehicle or trailer. Contact the campaigns to coordinate.
Oust the Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler. She wants to ELIMINATE more regulations. She voted YES on Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2019 to give “Defense” a bigger piece of the pie at the expense of helping elderly, missing middle, houseless, disabled, veterans. In 2017 Beutler voted to SLASH funding from EPA.
Show the Republican Administration that people in Washington state do not want families that are fleeing violence, murder, and death to be separate. We resist the oppressive arresting of refugees and we won’t take it lying down.
Show Republican Administration that our Olympia community stands up for families. To separate immigrant families, victims of violence, hunger, and poverty, is to re-violate them. Children as young as 18 months are torn from their mother’s arms by the U.S. government. This is violent abuse. These families are victimized again by the government to which they turn for help.
I attended the Rally and Speakers at the Poor People’s Campaign on Monday, June 11. The speakers were excellent, some were local, some were from Seattle. Heart breaking stories of the Houseless in Grays Harbor County. The Grays Harbor Chaplains are working hard to help them.
From children taken from their parents to people who have lived in this country for decades, immigrants and refugees have been targeted by the Republican Administration. Do your part to be a voice that this is unacceptable and we won’t stand for it.
Want to go back to the way things were when you were NOT insurable because you have a “pre-existing” medical condition? The Republican Administration is taking us there as the Attorney General refuses to defend the ACA Law (Obama-care) concerning so-called pre-existing conditions, in a crucial federal court case.
Take action to protect the Mueller investigation from Republican attempts to discredit it. Trump and his band of Republican protectors are launching attacks on the Mueller investigation daily, trying to win a propaganda war to discredit the Special Prosecutor’s independent investigation of the Trump investigation. Call your Members of Congress and ask them to continue speaking out in defense of the Mueller investigation and ask that they create a bipartisan coalition with concerned Republicans to safeguard the investigation.
