    I’m with the Coronado Dem Club (San Diego CA) and we’re putting on an Equal Justice Series via Zoom. For Oct. and Nov. we are looking for speakers on Environmental Policies/Actions that are racist and the same for Public Health. If possible we are looking for 2 to 4 for a panel? If we just have one person, that’s fine too!


    We are thinking they might present on any of the following: local, state, national, global policies/actions that disproportionately impact people of color and those living at a poverty level? Here are the potential Oct. dates: We’d do it either Saturday, Oct. 3 or 10th. We start at 10:30am-11:30am presentation and then 11:30am to 12noon for Q and A. However, we can change the date and time to fit their schedule. We do record the event, and post it on our website, not YouTube.


    To date we had an Introductory workshop in May, June was White Fragility, July was Policing and the Justice system, August was a deeper dive into what the Causes of Racism and Anti-racist actions. I am coordinating the presenters.


    Thank you so much for your help!

    Hello,


    I hope that all of you at California Mothers Out Front and the communities you serve are keeping each other secure and taking care. I am a PhD researcher at the University of California Santa Barbara and am wondering if you could send the research participation request below calling for participants for my research study on transgender or nonbinary parents active in the environmental justice movement to your listservs? I’ve reached out to Mothers Out Front National but figured I should try reaching out to my state’s chapter!


    I am also happy to send you a flyer and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval letter. The IRB reviews all research projects to ensure that research participants are not harmed by research.


    Thank you!




    Hello, my name is Jeff Feng, and I’m a graduate student in political science at the University of California at Santa Barbara. I’m conducting a research project exploring the activist experiences of transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse parents who are active in the environmental justice movement. Given the recent police brutality and state violence protests, I will also ask about participation in Black Lives Matter activism.



    When I say parents and parenting, I am referring to an expansive definition of these concepts, encompassing of transgender and non-binary parents who became parents through diverse routes, such as adoption. Those who view themselves as mothers, fathers, or parents within your community to youth activists or younger activists, outside of strict family ties (that is, you do not have a relationship to the person by law), are also encouraged to participate. I especially encourage folx who are people of color, immigrants, and poor or working class to participate in the study.



    Those interested will first complete a brief screening survey. The interview itself will last from 30 minutes up to an hour and a half over Zoom or the phone. The interview can be stopped at any time and questions can also be skipped. I would like to record each conversation to later analyze responses with those from other interviews for the purposes of writing academic and public-facing papers. Any quotes used in research outputs will be anonymous. To ensure confidentiality, all recordings and transcriptions will be kept in a securely encrypted storage drive.



    Please let me know if you are interested in participating in the study by emailing me at jeff@ucsb.edu. I am happy to address any clarifying questions.



    Best,



    Jeff Feng

    Hi, My name is Karl Aldinger , and I’m an organizer with Sierra Club San Diego. I’m hoping to find a contact with Mothers Out Front who represents a San Diego regional group. I would like to invite Mothers Out Front to do coalition work with other Climate & Justice organizations here in San Diego. Specifically, my invitation is to a group called the Quality of Life Coalition. I would also appreciate being able to introduce myself to a rep. from Mothers Out Front to help establish a working relationship to allow for future collaboration. Please feel free to forward this request to anyone you think may be interested. Thank you.

    I’m trying to sign up for your mailing list, but every time I try to fill out my information I get the message “Address is required” appear at the top of the page, even though I’ve filled out the entire form including address.

    Hi there! I have an opportunity to host a ‘shopping’ party at a jewelry store in San Francisco where 19% of the proceeds go to a non-profit of my choice and I chose Mother’s Out Front ! Can you please provide me with the name and contact info of someone at your organization for me to provide to the store? I will also need the address and name of the person for the check to be sent. Please let me know if the tax ID I found, 46-5758600, is not correct. I don’t anticipate it being a significant amount of money but hope it will be somewhat helpful in supporting all of your great work. Thanks! Danielle

    Hello! I am a mother, and just started the hashtag #EcoMom to try to get mothers involved everywhere! … I don’t see a Santa Cruz/Monterey group, but would like to harness the power of mothers here.

    I was just checking out your website, and was very impressed with the quality, look and feel.


    I’m sure you have seen a lot of companies are starting to add animated videos to their websites, social media and YouTube pages to help explain their services in a fun, clear and engaging way. I think a 60-90 second animated video would be a perfect way for you to get your companies message across to more potential clients.


    My team, located in Israel, helps businesses create quality customized Character Animation, Motion Graphics & Whiteboard videos at affordable rates.


    I would be happy to set up a call for a consultation and price quote.


    We are eager to hear back from you!


    Greetings from Jerusalem

    In your recent email “Grateful for rain, grateful for you”, you wrote erroneously that you “… helped to pass Senate Bill 100, for 100% renewable energy for CA by 2045, …”.

    Have you bothered to read SB-100? Nowhere does it call for 100% renewable energy by 2045. It calls for 100% zero-carbon energy by 2045. The CA legislature understands the limitations of renewable energy, but apparently you do not. Solar and wind farms rely on combustion of fossil fuels to back them up when the sun is down (or clouded out) and the winds are calm (or destructively strong). That fact makes 100% zero-carbon energy an impossible goal for the foreseeable future.


    Or perhaps you have read SB-100, but misinterpreted it because you think “zero-carbon” and “renewable” mean the same thing? Nuclear and large hydroelectric are both non-renewable zero-carbon energy sources. Without those sources, there’s no credible way that renewables alone (mostly wind and solar) can meet the demand.


    If batteries ever become cheap enough to store electricity from renewables when their output power exceeds the demand, and release it when their output is less than the demand, it’s theoretically possible to achieve 100% renewable energy. But doing so would require so many wind and solar farms that the goal is a practical impossibility because they would take up so much open space. Land is a limited resource.


    It’s fine to advocate clean energy solutions, but why don’t you do your homework first? That way you can avoid spreading misinformation. Homework must include fact-checking what you read, because many organizations and news have made the same mistake in reporting news about SB-100. Laziness to fact check is rampant.

    I am writing on behalf of YesCleanCars.org, a coalition of California environmental organizations working for passage of the Clean Cars 2040 Act, AB 1745. This bill provides that new model-year 2040 and later passenger vehicles sold in California must be zero emissions vehicles. The Sierra Club, Earthjustice, Stand.Earth, Environment California, Center for Climate Protection, 350 Bay Area, 350 Silicon Valley, NextGen California, Brightline Defense, Plug In America and Fossil Free California are among its chief supporters.

    This legislation will greatly reduce air pollution and carbon emissions from gas-powered cars. It will send a clear signal that the gasoline era is ending, thereby immediately disincentivizing coastal oil drilling. It will move billions of dollars from foreign oil to local electricity. The certain sunset date allows utilities, automakers, governments and businesses to prepare for a smooth, orderly, and economical transition.

    We were wondering if your organization would be willing to sign a letter of support on behalf of AB 1745 and/or send information about the bill to your membership.

    I look forward to your response.

    We’re also planning a rally on the West lawn of the Capitol in Sacramento for April 4 at lunchtime, including speakers and entertainment including electric vehicle demos and Coltura’s Gas Trap performance piece. Save the date, and we’ll send more info shortly.

    Thanks!

    Congrats for your organization…climate change seems to pale when I learn about the brain dangers for other toxins for our children presently in Santa Clara County:

    1. fluorosilicic acid, a neutoxin from phosphate fertilizer..600 tons is put in tap water in Santa Clara County. NIH says it does NOT prevent cavities, does cause stains/pits in half of US kids and when pregnant women drink such tap or bottled water, it lowers the IQs of children. Harvard agrees with 50 world studies that it damages brains and IQs.

    2. Last year CA passed law that took away parents rights to object to the 40 or more vaccines now required to get a child in public/private kindergarden in CA. Yes, vaccines are unsafe since Reagan gave vaccine companies immunity and they have no reason to do scientific and proper studies on the vaccines. Merck writes MMRII is ‘unsafe for babies, pg women and elders; Autism will be 1 in 2 with 4 x more boys than girls in the next few decades. Half of US kids have chronic health problems that did not exist 30-50 years ago. (5 vaccines by kindergarten for my 7 kids). Bill Gates is being sued by India for 47,000 paralyzed kids from the polio vaccine he gave them from US in 2000!!! Polio did not die off, it just has a new name.

    3. WiFi, the EMFs now causing more brain tumors in babies, 50% fertility loss under laptops (my grandson says "my laptop is sooo hot, I put a book under it.). 18 countries now ban/limit WiFi in schools. U.S. companies won’t tell us the risks.

    After 3 new pair of digital hearing aids, I read the instructions that suggest they don’t work around WiFi..and they don’t!


    Altho I have organized much in my 80 years, I failed to organize anyone in past 5 years against any of these 3 obvious and present dangers for my 18 grandkids. Parents lost their right to object to any vaccines for any reason with a CA law last year.

    Hopefully, your efforts against climate change can expand to these 3 very damaging toxins which do damage the brain and often kill. I’ll be glad to meet with any of your leaders.
