Notes & Links from our May Meeting

Thanks to Kate Beaton from the WI League of Conservation Voters (LCV) and everyone who turned out for our May meeting last night in Rice Lake. We had a lively, informative discussion about environmental issues, with an emphasis on water quality.

We also have a new group working to build community support for small-"d" democracy issues. Initial focus will likely be implementing the Move to Amend model combatting corporate personhood and dark money, and we may also take on gerrymandering and voting rights.

Let us know if you'd like to help with this or share your ideas!

Here are some water-related resources that were mentioned at the meeting:
