****Daily Do for Wednesday, November 22nd****
While some offices are open today, many Congressional offices will be closing at noon. We will resume the Daily Dos on Monday, November 27th. Thanksgiving is a bittersweet time for me, as I have so many fond memories of the holiday growing up; it was a singular time each year when my very dysfunctional family put on a facade of normalcy. As I learned more of our world, however, the reality of our history clouds my feelings about it. I do still enjoy celebrating what is good in my life and this imperfect world. As ever, my heart is incredibly grateful for all of you and all that you do, every day, to stand for justice.
ACTION: Support Our Anti-Fracking Activists at the Port of Olympia
For those who will celebrate and spend time with loved ones, please do what you can to keep in mind those who are taking a stand against oil fracking trains departing from our Port. They need supplies, and support, and to know our community is behind them.
- Please join them if/when you can. The blockade camp is at the intersection of 7th and Jefferson St.
- You can also donate at: https://rally.org/antifracking-olympiastand. They need food, building supplies, waterproof gear, warm clothes, first aid materials and tarps.
- Attend Port of Olympia and City Council meetings to voice public opposition to fossil fuel shipments
