There are days when I let my civic act slip until late in the day. To be clear, I spent time moderating Buy Nothing Somerville and I read up on Arnold Schwarzenegger's new digital environmental legislative playbook. I thought about a joining in a forest planting campaign of sorts and I monitored updates from Indivisible Somerville. I spent some time on a presentation I'm giving later this month with Climate Reality Project material and about a round table I'm likely moderating for Conscious Capitalism's Boston chapter in September. But it's 10pm and I still haven't done anything that actually qualifies as a civic act, even though my civic activities haven't slipped at all.
Today, I joined the Sierra Club as a member, because of their ceaseless citizen-based advocacy and lobbying efforts. I've been following their guidance and suggested activism for some time now any way.
