Foreclosure King Voted to Run Our Economy as Treasury Secretary

The Senate just voted to confirm a former Goldman Sachs banker known as the "Foreclosure King" to run our economy as Treasury Secretary.
Every Democrat except one voted no on Trump's nominee Steve Mnuchin -- an important show of unity against Wall Street and Trump. This should be rewarded.
Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala D. Harris voted no on Steve Mnuchin. Can you call them to say thank you for opposing Wall Street in this key vote?
The one Democrat to vote yes was West Virginia's Joe Manchin. Right now, PCCC members in his state are calling him to express extreme disappointment.
Weeks ago, tonight's show of Democratic strength against Wall Street was not expected.
The PCCC was the first group to run TV ads in key Democratic Senate states calling on senators to oppose Mnuchin. Every Democrat in these states voted no on Mnuchin! (Thank you to thousands of PCCC members who helped put these ads on the air.)
We also aired TV ads in key Republican states. They all voted with Wall Street against their constituents.
And it's also important that Democratic senators see that their constituents approve when they oppose Wall Street -- so please thank Sens. Feinstein and Harris today. Click here to make a quick call.
Thanks for making your voice heard, and being a bold progressive.

Subject: Gentle reminder about important BOS meeting this Wednesday on CREP for San Diego County

That is for you and has a little more info it. To make it easier I sent my email to one of them and "CC" (not Blind CC) the others. Here is their contact information. Thanks!

2.       Greg Cox: greg.cox@sdcounty.ca.gov                                                      619 531-5511

To the Board of Supervisors,
This Wednesday, February 15, 2017 please vote to implement the Comprehensive Renewable Energy Plan for San Diego County. A major component of this plan is Community Choice Energy. Please vote in favor of conducting a feasibility study of CCE.  Better yet, if possible vote outright to support implementing Community Choice Energy in San Diego County.
It is imperative that steps are taken as soon as possible to lessen the worse impacts of climate change and to protect air and water quality. Transitioning to cleaner energy will greatly help with these issues and will have a positive financial impact on local economies as well. http://www.fosterra.com/news/cca-study-projects-1-billion-economic-boost/.    
In appreciation for all that you do,

[SDCPJ] Fwd: [prcsd] Support the Sanctuary City Movement, 10am, Valentine's Day, San Diego City Council Meeting


Subject: [prcsd] Support the Sanctuary City Movement, 10am, Valentine's Day, San Diego City Council Meeting


Dear supporters of peace and justice,

The Peace Resource Center stands with the local human rights communities to ask the City Council of San Diego to sign onto the legal support for Washington State in its challenge of the federal government's unconstitutional ban on the rights of people to travel across borders based on their religious affiliation.

What you can do too in support-  an open letter from our friends at SDOP.

sincerely
Anne 

Dear SDOP Leaders and Clergy,

Join us as we Stand Together!

The City of San Diego will consider signing on to an amicus curie brief concerning the Muslim ban that Washington State is challenging this coming Tuesday.   The City of Chicago has asked our city to join in.  San Diego has a significant stake in the outcome of this action, as this issue impacts our community members. San Diego has the fourth largest population of people from countries banned under the current Executive Order, with almost 39,000 potentially affected people living here in the County.

You can help support this effort in the following ways:

1) Show up and stand with us this Valentine's Day, 02/14/2017 with your community members, families, neighbors, and friends at 10:00am at the San Diego City Council (202 C Street, San Diego, CA 92101).  The City Council will enter into a closed session at 11:00am to discuss whether or not the City of San Diego will join in on this brief. We want them to hear from community members that now is the time for us to speak up as silence would be a betrayal of the values we stand for. Please arrive early!!

2) Call and email your council-member(s) to let them know you support San Diego signing on to this brief. Many big-city mayors across the country are speaking out against the executive order. The mayors of Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle, among others, have issued statements and joined protests to denounce the order and to support immigrants and refugees.  It is time for San Diego to take a stand. Go to SanDiego.gov to get your council-member's phone number and/or email.

3) Add your name or your church's name to the sign-on letter. Click here for a copy of the letter. We will deliver this letter to the City Council and the Mayor on Tuesday Morning and hope to have a diverse representation of organizations and businesses represented.  To add your name to the letter, please reply to this email and cc Christie Hill, Senior Policy Strategist with ACLU at chill@aclusandiego.org.

"The subtle and deadly change of heart that might occur in you would be involved with the realization that a civilization is not destroyed by wicked people; it is not necessary that people be wicked but only that they be spineless." James Baldwin
