Kudos from Major Hales, reported by the Center for Sustainable Economy

Got this in an email today and needed to share – often I feel that our actions make a difference – but it’s so hard to measure.
I had an interesting conversation with Hales’ chief of staff the other day. I pressed him on what it was exactly that got Hales to change his mind on Pembina, a change of mind that has had ripple effects, leading to the groundbreaking fossil fuel export policy. You know what he said? It was these grandmas that kept beating him up all over Portland, he told me. They were relentless, he said, and Hales finally had to reconsider. So, thank you, Raging Grannies! For all you do for all of us. You’re our secret weapon!
