On the J Whitney bus line, or 20 minute walk from downtown up Whitney Ave. near Cold Spring St.

Help organize a New Haven based campaign to address environmental and economic injustice in the Americas - from climate change to mining to oil extraction to deforestation; we need to stop trashing the planet and stop dumping on marginalized communities.  We are working to develop an action oriented campaign that will involve art, music, nonviolent direct action, a march on October 2nd (Gandhis birthday), and push for concrete personal and policy change.   More info: Chris at This email address is hidden from email harvesters via JavaScript ; 203 562 1607 (mornings)

The past is our definition. We may strive, with good reason, to escape it, or to escape what is bad in it, but we will escape it only by adding something better to it.  Wendell Berry


Change means movement. Movement means friction.  Saul Alinsky
