Trump is trying to reverse Obama’s executive order adding land to the Channel Islands Sanctuary and other ocean sanctuaries off of the California Coast. PLEASE MAKE YOUR COMMENTS ASAP AT sanctuaries.noaa.gov. Over 40 years ago, the Santa Barbara oil spill ignited the national environmental movement. We must act now to keep drilling from happening in these critical California habitats.
An article from the Santa Cruz Sentinel explaining the issues follows:

Hear Guest Speaker Rick Wartzman on
“THE END OF LOYALTY:
The Rise and Fall of Good Jobs in America”
Big businesses once took responsibility for providing their workers and retirees with an array of social benefits. At the height of the post-World War II economy, these companies also believed that worker pay needed to be kept high in order to preserve morale and keep the economy humming. Productivity boomed. But the corporate social contract didn’t last.
The Drucker Institute’s Rick Wartzman, the author of a new book on the subject, explores the forces that changed work in America–and helped lead to the rise of Donald Trump.
Members will vote:
Our Board voted to spend $500 in “Flipping the 6th District,” Georgia’s Congressional Seat, with a special election to replace Tom Price, now Secretary of Health & Human Services. The membership will vote whether to make this donation and if it would all go to the campaign of Jon Ossoff or be divided with part to the Georgia Democratic Party.
