Jan 21: ChangeFest
The Capitol will be hopping on Saturday, Jan 21, with ChangeFest (on the north side) and the Women’s March (on the west side). You can go from one event to the other to hear speakers and live music, attend workshops, and meet local organizations that are working for a safe climate, healthy communities, equality, women’s and human rights, and much more. ChangeFest will include a march to the Western States Petroleum office to demand the end of climate change denial and transition to a clean energy economy.
Come by the 350 Sacramento table to say hi. We still need volunteers to staff the table. 11 am–3 pm on the north side of the Capitol. Sponsored by a coalition of organizations concerned about climate change.

On October 11, 2016, five climate activists, determined to act commensurately with the truth of unfolding climate cataclysm, closed safety valves on the 5 pipelines carrying tar sands crude oil into the United States. The five valve turners say their actions are not only necessary, but morally and legally justified to avoid the catastrophic harm caused by unprecedented climate disruption. Each faces years in prison for this act of courage. For more info go to shutitdown.today.
Come meet the valve turners and hear their story. There will be discussion and Q&A and they will pass the hat to help with their legal fund. Tentatively scheduled for 7 pm @Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. Volunteers needed. Laurie
Yes, your phone calls do make a difference. Commit to making two phone calls a day: one thank-you call to a decisionmaker who does something right and a second call to urge a correct decision. We have a cabinet of planet-destroying men to defeat, health care to save, pipelines to stop, our climate to protect… Keep phoning!
