We have one week left of having our MoCs mostly on our home turf, that is, not making mischief back in Washington and, at least theoretically, listening to our concerns. There will be plenty of phone calling to do again next week when they’re back in action, but for this week feel free to keep up the calling habit by using 5Calls.org, but you can also save you energy for the home front.
To that end, the two big “Do”s this week are Thursday night at the Moran Public Library and the Science March on Saturday afternoon. See below for more detail on both of them.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint, but the weather is getting better and these activities are a great way to meet friendly people and discuss the issues of the day. Plan them into your life wherever you can.
Fairly soon, if we are going to hope to make a real difference, we’re going to need to start thinking about precincts, precinct captains, candidates, campaigns, and voting. Without that we go nowhere. Some of that may not sound very appealing but it is the nuts and bolts of democracy. We either learn and play the game or we are just subjected to the game. More later.
Keep to the high ground.
THURSDAY THIS WEEK—Show CMR who we are!
Spokane Town Hall: Moran Prairie Public Library, 6004 S Regal St, Spokane, WA 99223, Thursday, April 20 6-8PM. Cathy McMorris Rodgers was invited well in advance, but likely will not appear. Plan to come as a serious concerned constituent. Think about preparing a statement/question. Here’s the link:
SATURDAY THIS WEEK
Spokane March for Science:
April 22nd Earth Day! 1-5PM. Meet at the Clock tower in Riverfront Park. Bring your kids, your grandkids, your parents, your grandparents. It will be fun, festive and fact-based. Check out the link below, and read the comments. I was at the first Earth Day…and I’m not willing to let all that slip away…
THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH
Nationwide, and even bigger than Earth Day.
Tribal Gathering Place (next to City Hall) at NOON.
SNAP, 3102 W. Fort George Wright Dr., Spokane, WA 99224
