NVDA via webinar with Alec & Tess

Hi all –

I just sent this to the local group leaders list, but I thought I would share here as well!

Thanks!

Hi all –

I wanted to let you know that Rainforest Action Network and 350 Seattle are partnering to host two online NVDA Coaching Sessions.

The webinars will be on Thursday, March 21st and Thursday, March 28th 5 Pacific / 8 Eastern. The Coaching Sessions will have a particular focus on how to use an affinity group model to have a successful, distributed NVDA action; it will be based on lessons learned from actions in Seattle, where we organized 13 affinity groups to shut down 13 banks simultaneously, and, in a follow-up action, organized 16 affinity groups to disrupt business at all 106 branches of the tar sands funding banks in Seattle, in a single day.

The Coaching Sessions are designed to line up with an upcoming national day of action targeting Chase and Wells Fargo however, participation in the national day of action is not essential in order to participate in the Coaching Sessions!

If you would like to join us for the Coaching Sessions please fill out this form. Or if anyone in your organization would be interested in attending the Coaching Series, please forward this email and have them fill out this form.

Thanks so much!

One for Kim Schrier

Trump’s new NAFTA deal is a disaster. It would encourage the outsourcing of pollution and jobs, offer special handouts to fossil fuel companies, lock in fossil fuel dependency, and prolong this administration’s polluting legacy for years to come. You can learn more on the Trade Policy Team page.

The new NAFTA also includes new rights for big pharmaceutical companies that would lock in high medicine prices —so Big Pharma has decided to lead the charge in its favor…and it may be working. If enough Democrats don’t oppose the deal, and specifically the drug chapter, it may be given a vote in Congress soon — and it could pass. Bad for our health, and terrible for the climate.

We need you! Can you please sign and circulate this petition demanding that Big Pharma giveaways be eliminated from any final NAFTA deal?  

If you are in Representative Kim Schrier’s or Adam Smith’s district, please ALSO call their offices and ask them to oppose Trump’s new NAFTA unless it is renegotiated without the pro Big Pharma terms. 

Adam Smith:(425) 793-5180
Kim Schrier: (425) 657-1001

If the push-back against Big Pharma is strong enough, Trump will be forced to renegotiate those terms — and it will give us the time we need to fight against all climate-killing terms in the deal.

Thank you for all you do!

This IS stepping up – 350Seattle has the training April 27, 28th

 

Last week we launched the Promise to Protect Training Tour – a tour coming to 9 cities across the United States to train thousands of activists like you to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline – and we don’t want you to miss out.

Watch the video below about what to expect and sign up for the Promise to Protect Training Tour this spring to get ready now for future action against the Keystone XL pipeline.

With Trump supporting Transcanada’s decision to pursue this dirty, destructive pipeline, we need all the people power possible to remind him and his fossil fuel friends that we won’t back down and will stop Keystone permanently.

This tour will prepare you and thousands of activists in 9 cities across the country to stand with Indigenous peoples, farmers, and ranchers against this pipeline and any future fossil fuel projects.

Check out our powerful launch video then sign up for a training in your city to get ready to fight against KXL.

The trainings will lead to powerful mobilizations to end our country’s dependence on fossil fuels. They will build strong alliances between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, while demonstrating strong opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline and fossil fuel development in our communities.

We’re up against powerful interests. We must dramatically expand the grassroots movement to move our country toward a just, 100% renewable energy future – and we need you to be a part of it.

Take a stand for our climate and Indigenous rights today – learn more and RSVP for this historic next chapter of the Keystone XL resistance. 

Will we see you there?
