In looking into it more, I saw some people also build shelters for the winter

This seems like a nice idea, though I'm also wondering if we should be aware of any unintended consequences?

We stopped by a nonprofit that helps stray cats, asking how we can help them.

They said they'd come by and get them vaccinated, neutered and tagged. So we arranged that.

podcast on incarceration, animal companions 

This episode of features an incarcerated man who takes care of animals he comes across in the prison yard. The list is incredible: black widow, vole, snake, snails, fly, frog...

and a moving exploration of asserting love and care in the face of confinement and torture.

Some topics we'd especially like to cover include -
* Women in union leadership roles.
* Trans issues as union issues.
* Why are women so underrepresented as union organisers, despite making up the majority of members?
* Organising where women are.

Solarpunk fashion week is great and all, but what if I started a action week? Get everyone out there doing something useful then sharing pics and resources

I'll probably wait until Spring so that it'll be a good time for planting. Maybe the week of Earth Day?

"It's my belief that history is a wheel. 'Inconstancy is my very essence,' says the wheel. Rise up on my spokes if you like but don't complain when you're cast back down into the depths. Good times pass away, but then so do the bad. Mutability is our tragedy, but it's also our hope. The worst of time, like the best, is always passing away."  #boethius
