I activated and accounts to organize at the town level, and I'm still processing how i feel about that.

Rode my for the first time today in eight years this morning. My legs are wobbly and our hills are HIGH but I feel really good.

Our sustainability group organized a last-minute petition campaign to urge our town council to accept a new waste management grant (that would have helped all residents dispose of food scraps).

Last night we presented 100 signatures, and there was a fire under the town council to navigate the bureaucratic layers between us and the grant. And now our list of people to mobilize is growing!

and feels good.

Our Town Council applied for a grant that would help us separate food scraps from garbage, but now that we've been awarded the money they haven't acted.

The Sustainable Rocky Hill community is organizing to pressure the Town Council to *accept the grant*.

What does decolonization of Hawaii, and the US look like? From one Native Hawaiian's perspective (me)
The US military is destroying our islands along with the 12 million tourists under foreign billionaire-owned tourism. Too many Americans are buying up our lands forcing us out by jacking home prices to $1.5 million etc.
But the solution in places like Hawaii, North America is not as simple as everyone who is white or non-indigenous simply leaving.

@derek @ayanaeliza I'm changing all the small ways I use plastic: using things that can be reused, repairing things, getting old bottles refilled from a zero waste shop, and avoiding water waste.
