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.
We must not forget Tahlequah, the mother Orca who carried her dead newborn for 17 days and 1,000 miles. Orcas are at risk of extinction. If we don’t act to save them in their natural environment (not tiny concrete enclosures) they will be gone.
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.
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.
The Sierra Club South Sound put together an impressive list of actions to protect the environment. They summarized it in an email, which we reprint here.
