Arvadans for Progressive Action (APA): Call to Action for November 12th - 19th

——————————————————————

***ARVADA CALL TO ACTION***

Contact City Council about organized trash and recycling. Please message "Contact Us" if you can make 1 3-minute public comment at a City Council meeting sometime this year. The amount of waste that we see from having 11 garbage companies drive around our city is mind blowing. And because these companies charge extra for recycling, Arvada only recycles about 13%. We can, and have to, do better. Please help City Council get to the right solution - if we had organized trash and recycling, each block would only have 2 trucks driving down it each week (one for trash and one for recycling), and recycling would be included in our rates. It’s time for the change. Find your City Council district here: http://maps.arvada.org/opendata/pdf/City_Council_Districts.pdf. Then call, email, or send a letter.

NATIONAL CALL TO ACTION: Call your members of congress and tell them to speak out against plans to pull out of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). Ask instead for eliminating nuclear weapons from our planet. Trump has announced plans to pull out of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). Pulling out of this landmark nuclear agreement will destabilize the world and waste vast amounts of tax money. Instead of pulling out of the INF we need to demand that our government negotiate with China, Russia and other nuclear armed countries to join the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Nuclear weapons provide nothing for security and are a danger to everyone. Please call your members of congress and tell them to speak out against this irresponsible action:
