Join us for our Brown Bag Lunch Vigil Wednesday at noon. Once again, we'll have our vigil at Rep. Lois Capps's office. One focus will be the environment, which needs a good spring cleaning!

Brown Bag Lunch Vigil

Our May BBLV asks include:

Tax Carbon to Stop Climate Change
  • H.R. 3242 - Rep. Pete Stark's Save Our Climate Act which would reduce emissions of carbon dioxide by imposing a tax on primary fossil fuels based on their carbon content. This legislation would use the revenues generated to lower the deficit and send money to the American people to help defray any higher energy costs. PDA is partnering with the Kids vs. Global Warming / iMatter coalition to demand meaningful action to stop climate change now.
Healthcare NOT Warfare
  •     HR 780 - Rep. Barbara Lee - funds only for orderly withdrawal from Afghanistan
  •     HR 4173 - Rep. Lee - "Prevent Iran from Acquiring Nuclear Weapons and Stop War Through Diplomacy Act."
  •     HR 676 - Rep. John Conyers “Medicare for all”
  •     HR 1200 - Rep. Jim McDermott’s American Health Security Act of 2011
I hope you'll join us!

Peace, Progress, Courage & Compassion,

Lois Hamilton
