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.
The Artesian Commons Park has been closed down by Paul Simmons on August 24, 2018. The “No Sit no Lie” ordinances are being more rigorously enforced than usual. We are going to help be one of many moving parts to mobilize community support to reopen the Comma\ons Park and show Olympia City Council and City management where we stand–in favor of people having access to public space and against the displacement and mistreatment of Houseless people, poor people, and the working class.
In 50 years, this clan of supersize dolphins has gone from being vilified and shot by fishermen to being rounded up for marine parks—48 Southern Residents were caught or killed during the capture operations in the sixties and seventies—to becoming the most iconic creature of the Pacific Northwest wilds.
Are you a Comcast customer in Thurston County? Give your feedback as cities and the County are about to renew agreements with Comcast.
At Home PNW is a small, dedicated collection of (mostly) formerly homeless individuals with an amazing assortment of skills, all working on supporting our local Houseless community here in beautiful Thurston County, Washington. Sarah Birnel and Tony Cole take various supplies to the Houseless all over Thurston County.
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.
Twenty22Many is Washington States first grass-roots, all volunteer, veteran suicide prevention and PTSD and medical cannabis awareness nonprofit organization. We accept all people no matter sexual orientation, gender, race or spirituality.
We all deserve to be able to have our health needs met without the mess that the insurance industry created. What can you do to help get us to a single payer system? Start by educating yourself with this town hall.
You can do something to help another person who is Houseless. Please consider donating needed items or cash on Saturday and Sunday at Lakefair at the “Free Speech” area at Heritage Park.
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.
