A fabulous friend sent me this link, and Imma share it with you. It’s from Americans of Conscience, prepared by Jennifer Hoffman. Ms. Hoffman puts together a weekly action checklist to help people contact their congressional representatives of various issues. Is it just for Democrats? No, it is not. Here’s what she says:
A word to Republican friends
You are not the enemy. You’re a fellow American concerned about the direction of our country. We have that in common.
If you believe that we’re Americans first and party second, your voice is more needed than ever.
That’s why she calls it AMERICANS of Conscience. Her list is for Republicans, Independents, Democrats, ebbybody!
Okay, you know how we have a vegan daughter, and how Charlie and I have been generally gravitating toward eating more vegan (or at least vegetarian)? Well, I found a new website to help. It’s called One Green Planet, and it has articles like this one on how to make meatless taste meatier. Our daughter doesn’t want her food to taste meaty, ’cause she thinks meat is gross, so this isn’t much help in cooking for her, but it is for us.
You know what’s cool in the summer? What’s cool in the summer is that Pam, aka The Unconventional Librarian, does a Summer Diversity Reading Roundup of picture books to Middle Grade books containing or exploring diversity. So you can check out her suggestions and buy or borrow the books. Cool!
I’m at InConJunction Fantasy and Science Fiction Convention this weekend. Selling books, I hope. Also meeting up with Joey, I also hope! I’ll still be blogging, though. No rest for the wicked.
