• Save Polley Field
    Everybody wants to see Calder Creek thrive again, but it can also happen without destroying our beloved baseball field. Polley Field has been around since 1957 and is easily one of the best and most unique little league fields in all of Sonoma County. Located in the heart of the city, encapsulated by redwood trees, there really isn't anything like it. It's home to generations of Sebastopol Little Leaguers and now their children. It's also the home to one of the longest running coed slow pitch softball leagues in the county with many who have been playing since the 70's. This field gets the most use out of any in Sebastopol and it would truly be a tragedy if the City Council chose to remove it.

  • Don't Let Mitch McConnell Steal Another SCOTUS Seat!
    Mitch McConnell has made clear he'll do anything to steal more Supreme Court seats. He blocked President Obama from appointing a Supreme Court Justice, refusing to hold a single hearing for months. Then, he changed the rules to confirm Trump-nominated Neil Gorsuch. He denied the ability to investigate Brett Kavanaugh to help rush his nomination. And he confirmed Amy Coney Barrett in record speed after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed—after voting had already begun in the 2020 election—to ensure a Trump-packed Court of right wingers who would fight for corporations and Big Money at the expense of our freedoms and justice for our communities. With the retirement of Justice Breyer expected this summer, Mitch McConnell is already scheming on how to do it again. He has no shame, no morals, and he will do anything in his power. This is why President Biden and Senate Democrats must act swiftly and decisively to ensure Mitch can't steal another seat or block a qualified candidate with fearmongering and disinformation. In his campaign, President Biden pledged to nominate the first Black woman to serve on our nation's highest court. There are exceptional Black women with the experience who are ready to serve — and now is President Biden's time to nominate one of those women to make history. Ultimately, the Supreme Court must be expanded and rebalanced to counter the right-wing Republican power grabs that have packed the court with Trump's pro-corporate, anti-justice nominees. A first step is to move quickly to nominate a skilled, exceptional, dynamic justice who will side with the rights of individuals and communities over corporations and big money—and to make sure Mitch's power plays and right-wing disinformation doesn't stall Democrats from confirming a new Supreme Court justice.

  • Act fast: Appoint Justice Breyer's replacement as soon as possible
    With the retirement of Justice Breyer expected this summer, President Biden has one of the most important decisions of his presidency: Who to nominate for the Supreme Court. President Biden must act swiftly. We can leave no time for Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans to try to steal another seat or block another qualified candidate. We know that McConnell will stop at nothing to block Democratic presidents from appointing Supreme Court justices—and we can't give McConnell and Republicans more time to play dangerous games with our justice system. In his campaign, President Biden pledged to nominate the first Black woman to serve on our nation's highest court. There are exceptional Black women with the experience who are ready to serve —and now is President Biden's time to nominate one of those women to make history, and time for all of us to step up to push back against the racist vitriol that any nominee is sure to face. Ultimately, the Supreme Court must be expanded and rebalanced to counter the right-wing Republican power grabs that have packed the court with Trump's pro-corporate, anti-abortion, anti-justice nominees. A first step is to move quickly to nominate a skilled, exceptional, dynamic justice who will side with the rights of individuals and communities over corporations and big money

  • It's Time for a Black Woman to Serve on the Supreme Court
    With the retirement of Justice Breyer, President Biden has one of the most important decisions of his presidency: Who to nominate for the Supreme Court. He must act swiftly. We can leave no time for Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans to try to steal another seat or block another qualified candidate. In his campaign, President Biden pledged to nominate the first Black woman to serve on our nation's highest court. There are exceptional Black women with the experience who are ready to serve. And with the Court losing legitimacy in the eyes of the public for its increasingly radical rulings, we need to add balance and diversity to the bench. This is President Biden's chance to nominate someone who is reflective of Black communities and communities of color who are constantly pushed to the margins. Someone who will fight for the most vulnerable. Now is President Biden's time to nominate one of those women to make history, who will bring a critical perspective to the court, reflective of communities of color so often marginalized and targeted in our politics. And the Senate must act swiftly to confirm a nominee—before right-wing disinformation or Mitch McConnell's power grabs can get in the way. We know a Black woman will face racism and vitriol from right-wing opponents and we need to be prepared to have her back. Ultimately, the Supreme Court must be expanded and rebalanced to counter the right-wing Republican power grabs that have packed the court with Trump's pro-corporate, anti-justice nominees. We're seeing their influence unfold in real time with abortion and voting rights cases. A first step is nominating a dynamic, skilled, progressive Black woman who will fight for the rights of individuals and communities and rise up against to corporate power and Big Money.

  • Support Proposed legislation for Virginia Historic Preservation!!
    This proposed change to Virginia State Law would prevent an owner from demolishing a property nominated and under review for local historic district designation until the review process is final and fully completed, and would allow any citizen access to the courts for purpose of appeal of any decision made by the locality regarding local historic district designation nomination. If approved and enacted, this change to Virginia State Preservation Law would prevent future situations such as the disastrous destruction and permanent, total loss of the historic, pre-Civil War Febrey-Lothrop-Rouse mansion and estate, and the similar total loss of the fully restored historic Fellows-McGrath 1889 Victorian home, both in 2021 in Arlington.

  • INDUSTRIAL SOLAR = NOT CLEAN ENERGY
    We need people to understand what Nexamp has done to us and our small community! Other large industrial solar companies are also doing this to other communities: LAWSUIT THREAT. Nexamp threatened to take the town to court because we were concerned about native wildlife and requested a larger buffer between the clear-cutting of the forest and wetland. Nexamp wanted to clear-cut 10 feet away from a wetland. ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION AND EROSION. Nexamp promised no noise or environmental disruption, but they lied. We endured the stressful deforestation of 30 acres in our backyards. A diesel generator ran 24/7 for 8 months for “climate control” of batteries on site, which caused noise and air pollution. Lots of litter blew onto our land and into wetland streams. We documented the litter, picked it up, and notified the DEP. Heavy, loud freight trucks used Conway’s small town roads and exceeded bridge weight limits to make large deliveries constantly at early hours during construction, stressing road surfaces and disrupting our rural neighborhood’s quality of life. Erosion took place in numerous areas around the site, some going into neighboring wetlands (still not remediated), abutters’ properties, and a public road.. Nexamp allowed rock dust from drilling and dirt dust from fill brought on site created storms of dust that blew around our homes during the hottest days from failure to have water trucks on site. This caused air pollution affecting our families and native wildlife. VIOLATION OF ABUTTERS’ BOUNDARIES. Nexamp went over the property lines of abutting neighbors with silt fencing, using inadequate data to accurately make site plans realistic for visibility from abutting neighbors due to tree cover and topography of land PANEL VISIBILITY. Nexamp promised the array would not be visible because it is situated on a high ledge, but we can see the panels from our home windows and from the public road. This eyesore has taken away beauty from our small rural town and disgusted many residents. POWER SURGES AND OUTAGES. When the array went “live” the neighborhood experienced random power surges and outages due to Nexamp’s faulty equipment.. This affected many people working from home and the performance of appliances and electronic systems. HARMFUL EXPOSURE TO “DIRTY ELECTRICITY.” After the array went live, harmful high-frequency dirty electricity (confirmed by Eversource) was broadcast into our homes for 7 months, affecting our children’s mental health, as well as the adults. Because of this urgent problem, Eversource shut down Nexamp’s solar array on 1/14/22. Subsequently most of the children’s aggressive, angry behaviors have changed; their demeanor is back to normal being happier and sleeping better. (Teachers and doctors are documenting this.) Also, my neighbor and I have developed tinnitus from exposure, all due to Nexamp’s faulty equipment. NO CLIMATE STUDIES. There have been NO studies done in New England on how these arrays are affecting the climate. One panel can get to 149 degrees Fahrenheit on a summer day! If there are 18,000 panels, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that these arrays are giant ovens heating up New England’s landscape. We need to stop allowing industrial solar to prey on small rural communities with inadequate bylaws, put people’s health in jeopardy, and wipe out native wildlife, many of which are in steep decline and becoming endangered. Temperature monitors need to be in place in and around every array built, and the public needs access to these numbers. We have every right to know how hot these industrial solar parks can become and how they affect the climate around them, and have resources for people to report dirty electricity!

  • Petition against the PWC Gateway rezoning, 4-lane highway, and increasing the DC Overlay Zone
    The proposal for the PWC Digital Gateway offers a false choice between building data centers to boost our commercial tax base OR protecting our national parks, Rural Crescent, and drinking water supply. We can do both! Land is available in the Data Center Overlay District, which means we can build more data centers in the right spot AND protect our environmental assets. We are seeking to keep the area currently zoned Agricultural, not to build the Bi-County Parkway (or similar name) and to keep the Data Center Overlay Zone as the current size until that area is built out and fully occupied. Prior to accepting the PWC Gateway Comprehensive Plan Amendment citizens would like to see an Environmental Impact, Water and Power Grid Study. If the Amendment is accepted, the current open space concept will be changed to include 70 foot building heights with noisy industrial strength HVAC Chillers on the roof, additional transmission lines, new substations, thousands of acres of trees decimated and watershed damage to the Occoquan Reservoir and Chesapeake Bay. Paving over the Rural Crescent for data centers and adding a 4 or 6 lane highway will accelerate climate change. In fact, we will create even more sprawl and more climate change acceleration as people move to areas further out than Prince William, to escape data center alley. The undersigned are asking the Prince William County Board of County Supervisors to vote NO on the PWC Digital Gateway Comprehensive Plan Amendment (CPA) rezoning. If you would like additional information regarding support against the above amendments see: GROUPS opposing the zoning change, building the parkway, and extending the data center overlay zone The Prince William Conservation Alliance PWConserve.org The Coalition to Protect Prince William County ProtectPWC.org The Piedmont Environmental Council The American Battlefield Trust The National Parks Conservation Association NPCA.org Manassas National Battlefield Superintendent Virginia Native Plant Society Coalition to Protect Historic Thoroughfare State of Virginia Forestry Department Water Management PWC Historical Commission Piedmont Environmental Council Great Falls Sierra Club Coalition for Smarter Growth American Battlefield Trust Manassas Battlefield Trust ManassasBattlefield.org Virginia Piedmont Heritage Area Va.

  • Save our Schools, Lawrence KS USD 497
    The current proposals to close East side schools provides an inequitable solution to the budget problem with unintended consequences. Closing neighborhood schools has been shown to increase truancy and negatively affect the academics of students from low SES and with learning disabilities. In addition, neighborhoods where schools are closed see an average decrease of 13% on home values (which then further affects the funding of local schools). Using ARPA funds to give the district more time to work with the community to come up with a better solution that doesn't involve closing schools is an important step in the process of creating a solid and inclusive school district in Lawrence.

  • Let Voters Decide
    Members of the Pennsylvania Democratic State Committee are elected by county and represent the Democratic voters in that county. They are not there to push their own personal preference. Just as we expect our other elected officials to listen to constituents, we expect our members of Pennsylvania Democratic State Committee to listen. We have seen how the party being perceived to push their preferred candidates has alienated voters and cost us not only state elections, but also national elections. It is time for the will of the people to be heard. Allow our Democratic process to operate in a fair and unbiased primary.
