5 THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR THE EARTH!! 1) MARCH FOR SCIENCE! Science is often overlooked, dismissed, and even denied in political arena. Trump Administration has threatened to further restrict scientistsí ability to research and communicate their findings. We face a possible future where people not only ignore scientific evidence, but seek to eliminate it entirely. It is imperative that scientists and non-scientists alike fight for and demand that policies affecting environment, health, and well-being of our society be based on science and fact. 2) TAKE A HIKE: Get outside, enjoy nature, and nurture your soul. 3) TAKE ACTION! Unfortunately, while our parks offer an amazing opportunity to explore and enjoy our wild places, Trump Administration has proposed eliminating a large portion of their budget. This could mean staff shortages, difficulty maintaining trails and facilities, and limits on educational programs. Let our local senators know that our National Parks are a priceless part of Americaís natural heritage, and they must be safeguarded as a legacy for future generations through proper funding and expanded protections. Most agencies are complaint driven, let your voices be heard! Call: Sen. Dianne Feinstein Phone:(202) 224-3841 Fax:(202) 228-3954, Senator Kamala Devi Harris (202) 224-3553 Fax: (202) 224-2200. Join EPIC's email list to follow our current Action Alerts! 4) STAND IN SOLIDARITY with Indigenous and Native Forest Communities. Across the globe, Indigenous and Native Peoples are fighting deforestation, pipelines, and other environmental harms that threaten their livelihood and culture. Educate yourself on local matters, and critically analyze how they may affect native peopleís who reside in those spaces. Educate yourself on how to become an ally. Keep in mind, an ally is never self-identified and self-defined, but rather, can only be identified and defined by the communities one is attempting to ally with. Learn more about how to be a proper ally for these communities. 5) SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL NONPROFITS! In these tremulous times ones activist spirit may feel spread thin, or forced to choose one single organization or cause to align with. Please don't feel discouraged, your support matters! Support can either be by donation or by dedicating your valuable time and energy. Donations are not always monetary, and although funds help keep the lights on in the office - organizations big or small have different needs. Check in on their current events or action campaigns and ask what they need! VOLUNTEERS: Epic needs people like you throughout the year to help support events, fundraising appeals, and other routine office tasks. No academic skills required, only willingness to help. Help out a great cause and get to know your fellow community members. Fill out info here, select volunteer tasks you are willing to help out with. INTERNSHIPS: Many EPIC staff members began their careers as EPIC interns. Come put that big brain of yours to work! From policy to graphic design, EPIC needs your specialized skills.

Fracking involves injecting millions of gallons of water, sand, and chemicals thousands of feet underground at high pressure to crack the rock and release trapped pockets of oil and gas. The gas leaks into our water table with the chemicals used to extract it. The damage is irreversible. This dangerous method of oil and gas drilling is already causing poisoned water and air in Wyoming, earthquakes in Ohio, and tap water that lights on fire in Pennsylvania. There is already Frack waste in your water in California, Colorado, and other states. It is not regulated anywhere. The underground explosions risk more earthquakes, and we are already seeing cancer clusters in neighborhoods around frack sites. While we know fracking is happening in California's Monterey Shale formation - which extends from Monterey County and the Central Valley to the Northern Los Angeles area - there are currently no regulations protecting our water from fracking in California. It's not even clear if it can be practiced safely. History has shown that the cement casing crack within 3 years. This is related to the Gulf disaster. Yet the Department of Conservation is moving forward with regulations that will continue to allowing fracking in California. We have enough water problems in California already. There is a global water shortage already. We don't need flammable water too! Until fracking can be demonstrated safe, which is unlikely, Governor Brown should Ban Fracking in California. More info: contact: Elijah Zarlin, Campaign Manager, CREDO Action from Working Assets.

If you eat meat it is important to know where your meat comes from and how is is raised and slaughtered. If you buy commercially produced meat, you are supporting an industry that is unnecessarily cruel to animals. If you have 11 minutes, please watch this video for a short and painful education about what really happens at commercial animal factories and slaughterhouses. Then consider paying the extra money to buy your meat from local sources in Northern California, where the animals are allowed to live out a more natural life outdoors and are slaughtered more humanely.

"75% of food and fiber we grow today was discovered and cultivated by native farmers and hunter-gatherers of North, Central and South America. These indigenous varieties include corn, beans, peanuts, cotton, potatoes, tomatoes, chili peppers, avocados, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, squashes, black walnuts, pecans, chocolate, tobacco, rubber, sunflowers, and medicinal herbs and plants." Read rest of article.

"When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money." - Cree teaching
