MORE INFO and LINKS for April

Save the Planet by Ending White Supremacy -  Sierra Club Director of  Organizational Transformation says we can't afford "disposable places, or disposable people"

Looks like California can’t reach its climate targets without prioritizing equity. 

Call your Senators on the Capitol Switchboard at 1-202-224-3121
ask them to support and vote YES on Senate Bill S3700
the House bill already passed earlier this month. 

Talking Points: * The prescription price of insulin has doubled in just four years.  
*No one should have to choose between getting insulin and putting food on the table. 

S. 3700 would cap insurance co-pays at $35/month, and make this life saving drug, more affordable to many more people with diabetes. 

* Vote YES on S. 3700, the Affordable Insulin Now Act.  Make your voice heard!
