Pima County, AZ: Regenerate Our Food, Health, Climate, and Politics
Our common planet, and our common governing system, are in crisis. We must unite to resist the forces that are degenerating our food, health, climate, social and political systems—but we must also focus on solutions, on how to regenerate those systems.
The Regeneration Movement is a grassroots-powered movement that aims to connect the dots between all of our burning single issues, and bring together people and movements into a united and powerful force capable of transforming the marketplace through consumer campaigns, and of reclaiming our democracy by electing new city, county and state officials. The Regeneration Movement is not a partisan left or right, democratic, republican, independent, green party or libertarian movement. This Resist & Regenerate meetup, one of hundreds across the country, is open to everyone who wants to learn more about regenerative food, farming and natural health, and how these issues also relate to climate, and social and economic justice.
Everyone who attends will be invited to participate in the Consumer and Political Revolutions that we so desperately need.
While this isn't an actual event, it is a request for all of you to support Tucson City Council Members and Mayor by emailing them to share your appreciation for their vote on October 23rd, 2018, to go Organic First on Tucson's Public Lands! This is a landmark decision and one of the healthiest for our community both physically and financially!
On February 5th, they convene, after 90 days, to determine the implementation of an Organic First Policy for 2019! Imagine never banning another harmful pesticide, by simply regenerating our parks, easements, and Tucson public lands. It may take some time to achieve the full goal and we are very proud of them taking the first step! It is important we acknowledge their leadership and tell them how much we appreciate their decision to keep Tucson's citizens safe with their commitment to Organic First.
Modeling after Irvine, California, and 155 other cities that have successfully gone organic with impressive results, it just made sense to choose this for Tucson. Water consumption in Irvine's pilot field went from watering 6 days a week to 2 days and it may actually go to 1 day a week. Think of the possibilities for our arid desert!
There are 278 Resist and Regenerate MeetUp members. Let's have an exceptional response to acknowledge the forward thinking the Council Members and Mayor have made for their constituents! Please write as soon as possible and no later than February 4th! They deserve our support and an email is a good means to express it!
WELL DONE Mayor Rothschild and Council Members! Please email Tucson's Mayor and City Council to show appreciation before February 1, 2019, if at all possible. The Contact information is:
