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.
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.
An important action reposted from Glen Anderson’s blog “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives”. The U.S. Constitution requires a census that will count EVERY person in the U.S. Presumably, it must be HONEST. But Trump is planning to distort the 2020 census for blatantly racist and highly partisan purposes. Trump is planning to add a question about citizenship in order to intimidate and under count America’s immigrants.
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.
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.
