Things to do week of April 24

It’s National Parks Week — a reminder of the need to protect our public lands. That means stopping the expansion of fossil fuel production on our public lands and waters. Support Senator Jeff Merkley’s “Keep it in the Ground” bill.

Tell U.S. banks they must NOT provide any financial services to TransCanada that could help construct the Keystone XL pipeline.

Support Common Cause’s effort to sue North Carolina. After North Carolina’s Republican governor lost his re-election bid, his allies rammed through a bill that stripped away the executive powers of the incoming Democratic governor, and took it for themselves.

Saturday, April 22 was Earth Day and the March for Science.  Let’s keep the momentum going.
