68] – Palestine, as a Climate Justice Issue will be discussed on Wed., Nov. 9 at 1 PM ET. Register https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUldOisqjMoGtx2aBb0cwhTAqT8owe6UsQm.  Email info@kairosresponse.org.  The world's climate and environmental crisis touches every corner of the globe. Everyone in the world is truly "in this together."  However, some are being hit harder and sooner. The most vulnerable populations of the world are bearing the brunt of climate change and suffering daily environmental injustice.  Nowhere is that more true than in Israel/Palestine. For Palestinians, climate change is not just a natural phenomenon, but a political one. Israel‘s regime of occupation and apartheid, which denies Palestinians the right to manage their land and resources, greatly heightens the impact of the climate crisis for Palestinians, making them more vulnerable to all climate-related conditions. Learn the environmental reality in Israel/Palestine today, what is being done by the land's indigenous protectors, and what we can do to support their efforts.  One of the speakers is Mazin Qumsiyeh, an authority on the natural world of Palestine and environmental justice. 

69] – Learn How to Pass a Local Resolution in Response to the January 6 Investigation, a Virtual Meeting, hosted by January 6 Hearings on Wednesdays, Nov. 9 & 16 from 5 to 6 PM EDT.  Passing local resolutions helps build momentum on a local, state and national level to protect our freedom to vote from ongoing efforts by Trump and MAGA Republicans to sabotage our elections.

  The bipartisan January 6th Select Committee has shown that Trump and his MAGA allies planned, promoted, and paid for a criminal conspiracy to overturn an election they knew they’d lost. Trump and his MAGA allies continue to work to sabotage future elections by changing state laws, threatening state officials and packing election administration offices so that they can have the final say over election results – even when they lose.
