Don’t Abandon Wolves

Don’t Abandon Wolves

The Obama Administration is on the verge of stripping most Endangered Species Act protections away from gray wolves. If this happens, wolf management will be turned over to the states — something that’s already proven itself disastrous!

Please help wolves in their 11th hour!

State management for wolves already happened in the Northern Rockies, and it’s been a disaster. Over 1,700 wolves have been ruthlessly hunted down and killed in just the last two years. If the federal government goes through with their plan to strip wolves of ESA protections, this could happen in part of the U.S. where wolf populations are even more fragile than in the Rockies.

Don’t let the Obama administration abandon wolves! Sign the petition urging the Obama Administration to keep wolves fully protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Creating a better world with the 2 most abundant resources on earth: solar power and people power.

Vote Solar works at the federal, state and local level to implement the policies and programs that build robust solar markets — and pave the way for a transition to a renewable energy economy.

America’s energy problems — from economic crisis to global climate change — will only be solved by a national transition to renewables. Clean, homegrown, reliable solar energy is ready to play a large part of the solution. It is the fastest growing energy source in the world, but we have still just scratched the surface of solar’s vast energy potential. In order to bring the technology to scale, we need to bring down costs. Vote Solar works to build the economies of scale necessary to bring solar into the mainstream.

California Paying For Death

Dear Gabriel,

For the first time ever, California voters have a chance to replace the deeply immoral death penalty by voting YES on Proposition 34.

The poll numbers are tight and they indicate that Californians are ready to end the death penalty with life in prison without the possibility of parole. But before they make the right decision to vote YES on 34, we need to give them the facts about how — beyond the loss of life — the death penalty imposes a very real financial burden on our state.

To do our part, we are partnering with our friends at the YES on 34 Campaign to help them reach the seven million voters necessary to win in November.

We need all hands on deck to end the death penalty in California. Can you chip in $3 today to help the YES on 34 Campaign get its state-of-the-art phone bank campaign off the ground?

The YES on 34 Campaign’s volunteers have started calling through the voter lists to reach as many voters as possible. But if we raise enough funds, they will be able to launch a state-of-the-art phone banking program with technology that allows hundreds more volunteers to phone bank from their own phones anywhere in the state.

With about seven weeks left until Election Day, your contributions are crucial. If we are going to end the death penalty in California, we are going to do it through grassroots communication.

A recent editorial endorsement from the Sacramento Bee, which for the first time in its 155 years of service took a position to end the death penalty, summed up the need for educating our state’s voter on the facts around YES on 34:

In November, California voters will have a chance, through Proposition 34, to end the death penalty and replace it with a system of life imprisonment without possibility of parole. We urge you to vote for it. While capital punishment remains popular in California, polls suggest that a majority of those surveyed would accept ending the death penalty if it were replaced with a mandatory sentence of life without parole. Numerous longtime supporters of capital punishment have concluded our system can’t be fixed and are supporting Proposition 34 because of it.1

The money you contribute today to fund YES on 34’s state-of-the-art phone bank campaign will directly boost our chances to end the death penalty. One-on-one contact is the single most effective way to turn a “no” vote into a “yes” vote.

Chip in $3 today to end the death penalty in California.

Thank you for taking action.
