NO FURTHER ACTION IS TO BE TAKEN AT THIS TIME.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. If you are looking for a meaningful, engaging and fun way to spend a morning or afternoon, try volunteering! Hope House, a 2-3 meal a day, 7 days a week soup kitchen is looking for people interested in cooking or overseeing one morning/afternoon shift on a regular basis. Training for both activities will be provided.
Stop the TPP!
The TPP is much more than a “free-trade” agreement. It is part of the overall corporate and Wall Street agenda to make the world safe for corporate investment and profits by reducing labor costs and undercutting workers’ rights; dismantling labor, environmental, health and financial laws and regulations that could impact profits; and setting up a process to resolve any disputes by going through special international tribunals rather than our own court system.
We want FiOS!
Urge Verizon to give the citizens of CNY access to it's flagship FiOS product. FiOS speed, reliability, and security will provide incredible bandwidth to businesses and government agencies, provide educational entities access to high quality video conferencing, and give residential customers affordable access to telephone, television, and high speed internet.
