23] – Get with NextGen Organizing for a Freedom to Vote Act virtual Text Bank on Wed., Aug. 16 from 1 to 3 PM ET. The Freedom to Vote Act was reintroduced this summer as a bicameral bill to expand access to the ballot box, modernize voter registration, ensure fair maps, and much more. Now is the time to take action and ensure your representatives support this bill. Choose a time that works for you, and you will get the script, texting platform, guides, and a community to connect with other NextGen volunteers!  RSVP at

24] –    Climate Reality [] wants to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act on Wed., Aug. 16 at 12:45 PM ET. Climate Reality is collaborating with Rewiring America to look back at the legislation’s impact so far and look ahead at its even-larger potential impact if we all seize the opportunity to electrify our lives. Since the IRA was enacted, 270 new clean energy projects have been announced, which could create over 170,000 good-paying jobs, totaling $278 billion in new investments for local economies. This remarkable boost in clean energy is expected to save the average family $1,000 a year and get us on track to lower emissions beyond what was even thought possible just a year ago.   REGISTER at

25] – Food & Water Watch [] is asking What (or who) is causing the water crisis in the West? You guessed it. Factory farms and mega-dairies. This virtual event will take place on Wed., Aug. 16 at 3 PM ET.  Hear about the Colorado River Basin & Water Security in the West. The Colorado River provides water to seven U.S. states and Mexico, but in the face of climate-change-induced drought and greedy water use by industrial agriculture, communities have been struggling with reliable access to water in recent years.

Discuss the key findings with the new report’s author, Kat Ruane. Also learn from Food & Water Watch organizers about on-the-ground efforts to rein in factory farms and mega-dairies. These agribusinesses are using so much water that many household wells are running dry, and the water security for over 40 million people who rely on the Colorado River hangs in the balance. RSVP at
