Actions #31-33: Fund EPA

Made a donation and wrote two hard copy letters to representatives asking them to continue to fund EPA.

Actions #29-30 Earth Day

And for Actions #29-30, in honor of Earth Day, I gave two separate presentations at school to multiple grades about waste, where garbage goes, and the importance of reduce, reuse and recycle in that order.

Actions #27-28: Continued work

I'm starting to revise a little what I mean by actions. Petitions still don't count, but some repeated actions do.

For example, I told you I am now a co-leader for Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom. Actions 27 and 28 are additional meetings we've held.

Coolest Niece Ever

My niece is hiking the PCT. I'm in awe.

Wish I could remember how to add blog list to the scroll on the side of this page but I don't remember how.


Since I didn't go to the Science March, I was able instead to attend the first Tiferet bat mitzvah! It was a wonderful event. A special tweak was that at the last minute they needed a stand-in to bring out the Torah. I've done it so many times I was able to without even feeling nervous!

Action #25: Science March... sort of

I was going to go to the Science March, bags packed and everything. Then I realized I would have to leave work earlier than originally planned for a fighting chance to arrive before Shabbat started. Unfortunately, I had to bag out, but U went instead.

Action #24: Sent money

I'm told this is a cause that will never win, but I won't give up. Sent money to Everytown USA.

Changed theme

As you can see, I changed my blog theme. I'm not sure this one fits perfectly with my site, but I just love it. What do you think? Please leave comments.

Action #22: Libaries

Not giving up yet, even though I've been absent.

Emailed to support libraries.
