Hello Friends!

After a brief break, we’re back on the road following Jackson Browne’s tour, highlighting great non-profits along the way!

First, though, we want to share with you the National Network of Abortion Funds, at https://abortionfunds.org. The NNAF is a network of over 90 organizations who work to provide financial assistance, travel, lodging, and many other types of support to abortion seekers.

NNAF is currently raising money for these funds, and says, “Local funds need your support more than ever. Please support coordinated efforts already happening on the ground. Funds are connected across the network to get people what they need, wherever they are.”

You can donate here – these contributions will be spread across the funds in the network: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/supportabortionfunds?refcode=social.
You can find your local abortion fund, and learn how to help them, here: https://abortionfunds.org/funds .

NNAF’s website (again, https://abortionfunds.org ) has a wealth of information on the status of abortion in all states, and what you can do to help.

Back to Jackson’s tour, we start in the Vermont / Connecticut area, with Citizens Awareness Network, a grassroots environmental organization working in New England to end the use of nuclear power and promote responsible stewardship of radioactive waste. The Network is working to keep pressure on public officials to deal with the nuclear waste crisis in the region.

While the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant shuttered in 2014, problems remain. Politicians are pushing to send this waste to “temporary” sites in working poor, Hispanic and Indigenous communities in the Southwest. Such a plan is environmental racism. Those folks don’t want it and don’t believe it’s temporary. Vermont needs to store the waste here until a scientifically sound, environmentally just, permanent solution is found. Dumping it on another community is environmental injustice.

Next, we follow Jackson to Boston on 7/14, and meet Stop Handgun Violence. They are dedicated to ending gun violence through public awareness, education, common sense gun laws and community violence intervention.

Since it was founded in 1994, the organization has reduced gun deaths in Massachusetts by 40%. They have passed strong gun laws in the Commonwealth that keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous individuals, require safety and accountability on the part of firearm owners and ban the sale of weapons of war and high-capacity magazines.

In the coming year, they will work to strengthen Massachusetts’ gun laws further and replicate the Massachusetts model of gun violence prevention in other states across the U.S. You can be part of the solution to gun violence by signing up at and learn more at: www.stophandgunviolence.org

Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you next week.
