Daily Voice : Tell Congress to Renew Funding for Diabetes Research and Prevention
« Reply #168 on: December 19, 2013, 01:01:01 PM »
Tell Congress to Renew Funding for Diabetes Research and Prevention

The Special Diabetes Program battles diabetes with progressive research and effective treatment, and if Congress reauthorizes the program, we can continue moving forward.



SDP has already produced advances in halting and reversing the complications of diabetes; progress in identifying environmental triggers of type 1 diabetes; and a 28% reduction in the incidence of end-stage renal disease in the Native American communities -- among its many accomplishments.



That is why it is essential to ensure Congress renew funding for SDP!



Your Members of Congress need to hear from you about this crucial program now. Make sure it's at the top of your Members' to-do-lists in the fall session.

Daily Voice : Pledge to Remember Homeless Children this Christmas
« Reply #169 on: December 20, 2013, 01:00:19 PM »
Pledge to Remember Homeless Children this Christmas

This Christmas, those of us who are lucky will wake up in a safe home to celebrate with family. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of children in the UK will not be so lucky.



It's estimated that nearly 80,000 children in Britain will be homeless this Christmas.



The problem of housing security is one that the entire community must commit to solving. If we each spend just a moment reflecting on the importance of a safe and stable home for the healthy development of Britain's children, it will help change the mindset of the country and move us toward the change we need.



This year, take the pledge to remember homeless children on Christmas Day. Hopefully, one year we will all celebrate Christmas at home.

Daily Voice : Help Save the Polar Bear
« Reply #170 on: December 21, 2013, 01:02:15 PM »
Help Save the Polar Bear

Polar bears face many threats — from climate change to pollution to oil and gas development. The commercial trade of polar bears skins and parts is also contributing to their alarming decline.


Please act today and let the Prime Minister of Canada know you would like to see greater protection for polar bears.



We have prepared a template email for you to send. We encourage you to personalise this copy to make it more effective. Please ensure that you are polite at all times.

Daily Voice : Congress: Don't Obliterate the Endangered Species Act!
« Reply #171 on: December 22, 2013, 01:01:49 PM »
Congress: Don't Obliterate the Endangered Species Act!

This month marks the 40th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act -- the strongest law we have for protecting rare animals and the habitat they need to survive.

Rather than celebrate the hundreds of species saved from extinction - like bald eagles, wolves and grizzly bears - and the millions of acres protected by the Act, Tea Party darlings Rand Paul and Mike Lee and other right-wing members of Congress have introduced a bill that would obliterate the law.

The bill would require that every five years all protected animals and plants be removed from the endangered species list, eliminating all legal protections and putting them in the crosshairs of those who want them wiped off the landscape.

No matter how close to extinction it might be, each species would then have to wait until Congress passed a joint resolution renewing its protections under the Act for another five years.

Tell Congress we've come too far to turn our backs on this landmark environmental law and the endangered wildlife it protects.

Demand That Any Changes to New Orleans' Noise Ordinance Meet the Needs of Musicians, Culture Bearers

SUPPORT A 'NOISE ORDINANCE FOR ALL NEW ORLEANIANS'


We believe that the culture and music of New Orleans form the backbone of our city.  It enhances the quality of life, creates income and opportunity for thousands of residents, and has created one of the most distinctive and famous destinations in the world.  A noise ordinance that threatens the culture of New Orleans not only damages the ability of thousands of people to make a living, lowers property values and endangers quality of life, but it puts the very identity and uniqueness of the City in danger.


To ensure this doesn't happen, the Music and Culture Coalition of New Orleans, a group of musicians, cultural workers and bearers, residents, and business owners, created the 'Noise Ordinance for all New Orleanians', which demands that any changes to the noise ordinance must be done with input and support from the cultural community.  We have listed five major points that must be addressed:


LOCALIZED DECISION MAKING


MEDIATION, NOT CRIMINALIZATION


PROFESSIONAL ENFORCEMENT AND EDUCATION


CLARITY OF STREET PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS


HONORING TRADITION AND INNOVATION


Please join us and sign this petition in support of these principles.  Together we can protect the culture of New Orleans, and ensure the livelihoods of our musicians, cultural workers and culture bearers.


 


 'A Noise Ordinance for All New Orleanians' (full text)


The Music and Culture Coalition of New Orleans (a community group composed of musicians, cultural workers and bearers, residents, and business owners) offers the following principles for a noise ordinance that works for all New Orleanians.  We believe that these principles form an excellent base for the creation of a fair, equitable and accessible ordinance, but that it must also be crafted in consultation with musicians, cultural workers, community groups, residents, business owners, and professional sound scientists. Such a policy must also receive ample public hearing.


Preamble: Music and performance are the backbone of our city and they drive our local economy. Live music draws millions of tourists to the city every year, attracts new residents and investments, and enhances real estate values in neighborhoods of cultural and musical vibrancy.  A comprehensive noise ordinance that threatens the distinctiveness of New Orleans threatens our quality of life, the long-term economic growth of the city, and the everyday ability of thousands of our residents to earn an income.  For New Orleanians, quality of life includes recognizing the interests of performers, residents (both owners and renters), businesses, and visitors in a manner that honors our culture bearers and the traditions—new and old—that comprise our city’s most important asset.


- LOCALIZED DECISION MAKING: While a citywide noise ordinance provides necessary coherence, blanket regulations are inappropriate and do not recognize the unique characteristics present in our neighborhoods. Regulations should be appropriate to the individual character and soundscapes of the city’s diverse neighborhoods, communities, and traditions.  Such policies must be created and enforced with the input of residents, neighborhood associations, businesses, performers and cultural workers.


- MEDIATION, NOT CRIMINALIZATION: Noise complaints should lead to a formalized mediation process rooted in the involvement of concerned residents, neighborhood and community groups, affected performers, cultural workers, and local businesses. Criminalizing live music is neither a good neighbor policy nor a good economic policy in a city that thrives on the availability, diversity, and innovation of performance.


- PROFESSIONAL ENFORCEMENT AND EDUCATION: New Orleans needs a dedicated office directed with handling noise complaints that is both accessible and accountable. It is integral that this office be tasked with providing outreach to residents, businesses, performers, cultural workers, and other members of the cultural community about rules and regulations. This office must also take the lead in starting and fostering any mediation necessary to bring all involved parties to a mutually satisfying resolution of issues.


- CLARITY OF STREET PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS:  Hours of performance and sound levels for street musicians and other performers may require legal and enforceable regulation, but these regulations should not threaten New Orleans’ reputation as a city that nurtures music, performance, and cultural innovation.  Regulation on street performance must be crafted in consultation with performers themselves as well as residents and businesses.  Once determined, hours and levels should be clearly posted on streets and online. Furthermore, all involved parties should have access to training and workshops regarding these regulations to ensure a common knowledge and understanding of the issues should the need for mediation arise.


- HONORING TRADITION AND INNOVATION: Traditional cultural practices including but not limited to Jazz Funerals, Second Lines, street performance, Mardi Gras Indian practices, parades, and gatherings should be explicitly encouraged and protected in the language of any final ordinance. These traditions lie at the core of our city’s culture and its economic growth, and the need to preserve and maintain the importance of these treasures must be considered at the heart of any mediation efforts.

Daily Voice : Tell Coca-Cola and Pepsi to Say NO to Tar Sands!

Tell Coca-Cola and Pepsi to Say NO to Tar Sands!

Coca-Cola and PepsiCo have always been two of the fastest companies at reacting to customer feedback - and it's time they hear your feedback about the climate.



Will you contact the beverage giants below and ask them to slash oil use in their vehicle fleets?



The soda industry owns over 100,000 vehicles, and guzzles more oil than nearly any other industry. If they agree to slash their oil consumption and avoid tar sands fuels, it will be a big step forward for the climate.



This is among the first efforts of the new Future Fleet initiative from the Sierra Club and ForestEthics. We're pushing America's biggest companies to take responsibility for their oil consumption, using our own secret formula: the grassroots power of over 2.1 million supporters like you.



Use your power as a consumer to help the climate - send your letter asking Coke and Pepsi to slash oil use and kick the tar sands habit!
