Spread the Word So We Can Stop this Anti-Marijuana Crusade
Jeff Sessions is trying to restart another ‘war on drugs’ and this time its marijuana. We know that it is the low-income communities and communities of color mostly who suffer the consequences of our failed prohibition policies. Watch this fantastic award-winning documentary, 13th (2016), about the systematic oppression of communities of color happening in our country since slavery was abolished.
Now, Move On members have been fighting in the Senate—introducing legislation that will end the prohibition of marijuana at the federal level: the Marijuana Justice Act.
Sign and share the petition calling on your senators to support the Marijuana Justice Act. Will you watch and share this video explaining how Jeff Sessions’ anti-marijuana crusade is not only misguided, but will continue to be increasingly catastrophic?
Organic Consumers Association Asks Us to Stop Trump’s Attack on Organic’s Animal Welfare Rules!
If Trump’s U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) gets its way, organic egg producers won’t have to follow updated animal welfare rules—rules that the industry fought for, and that consumers overwhelmingly support.
Trump’s USDA is ditching the Organic Livestock Poultry Practices (OLPP) rule, finalized in December 2017, that would have given organic egg-laying hens more space and access to the outdoors. Even worse, USDA officials are justifying the move, saying that the National Organic Program (NOP) doesn’t have the power to address “stand-alone animal welfare concerns.”
Tell Your Senator: Support the Plan to Rebuild Puerto Rico
Jennifer Lopez did not attend Sunday night’s Golden Globes because she has been in Puerto Rico doing relief work in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria . Three months after the devastating hurricane, there is still much to be done: One-third of the island’s power is still out, access to water remains limited, and thousands have been displaced from their homes.
“Months after Hurricane Maria, thousands of people in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are still without electricity, and many don’t have access to basic needs — including clean drinking water.
Senator Bernie Sanders has created a bill that will help Puerto Rico rebuild. The bill prevents privatization of Puerto Rico’s energy and prioritizes transitioning to renewable energy. In addition, it relieves Puerto Rico’s municipal debt and provides critical funding for infrastructure, which will help ensure clean drinking water for residents.” – Food and Water Watch NY

Help Protect Wildlife and our Water: Say NO to Offshore Drilling TODAY
“The Trump administration unveiled a plan Thursday to open vast new stretches of federal waters to oil and gas drilling, erasing the policies put in place by previous Democratic and Republican administrations and setting up a conflict with state governments fearful about the risk of spills.” – Ben Lefebvre, Politico, January 4, 2018
Offshore drilling is dangerous for our planet and the animals that live in our oceans. We know firsthand the cost — after 200 million gallons of oil were spilled in the Gulf of Mexico when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig caught first in 2010. Check out more from this Washington Post article.
After this spill, we saw sea turtles and dolphins covered in oil, increased dolphin deaths, and fewer Kemp’s sea turtle nests.
On February 15th, Food and Water watch will be hosting a free screening of “To the Ends of the Earth,” a powerful documentary about the dangers of extreme methods of drilling for fossil fuels. Fine more details on their Facebook page here.
Protect the Grand Canyon by Chipping in Today!
“The Grand Canyon is no place for dangerous uranium mining. It’s a natural wonder that took millions of years to form, and is beyond breathtaking. It’s exactly the kind of place that we have a responsibility to preserve for future generations. But the Trump administration’s proposal would pave the way for uranium mining in more than 1 million acres of protected Grand Canyon watershed.” – Environmental Action, Boston-based nonprofit group
