Consider this MY warning: We won’t be silent. We will speak out. And we WILL persist.

Action items for this week:
While there are a ton of items that I care about and I’m concerned about everything from civil rights to education, right now I feel like my focus has to be on the environment and public lands. It isn’t that I’m not paying attention to everything else but this is what I can manage to put my energy to and where I feel like I have the most knowledge and vocal strength.
First up: The March for Science happening on Earth Day, April 22nd. Satellite marches are all over the country, find one near you!
Second: Listen to this episode of SheExplores with Katie Boué as she talks about being an advocate for the outdoors.
Third: Modern Hiker has put together a list of anti-environment and public land legislation being proposed right now. I sent off post cards last week about HR 621 and 622 to my reps and then saw Chaffetz pulled 621—but I don’t think I trust him or that it would not be revived at a later date. I need to get postcard stamps because I feel like I’ll just be sending them off weekly from here on out. I’m pretty sure Cruz and Cornyn will not give a rats ass about them but maybe my House rep will. I don’t see his name in the news too often. Also, a lot of #*%@ went down at the state capitol this week and I’ve got to find some time to get familiar with what’s going on there and get on top of my local reps.
Fourth: Scream into the oblivion? I guess I will channel my anger into digging in the dirt this weekend.
