Important stuff coming up

First, if you haven't signed up to help make calls and knock doors for Scott Walker & Co.'s desperately needed replacements, ?!why the heck not!? Do you really want another term of environmental, public services, and infrastructure disasters? Do you want mining companies and CAFOs to decide the quality of our air and water? Do you want even more millions of tax dollars doled out to Walker cronies with no strings attached? Call NOW and sign up to help. (608 615-1733)

Second, while we dither, the planet's burning up. Come to the Rise for Climate rally on Saturday and make a commitment to push for real action. Changing a few lightbulbs and riding your bike around when it's nice out isn't going to cut it. We need big and deep changes right away. (And be sure to start out at Pride in the Park, in the north half of Riverside).

There are many events to highlight, but you can check the calendar (and let is know if something is missing!)

One more important and timely event from Viterbo's Ethics Institute:

THE LATEHOMECOMER AUTHOR KAO KALIA YANG TO OPEN THE D.B. REINHART INSTITUTE FOR ETHICS IN LEADERSHIP LECTURE SERIES AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY SEPT. 13

Kao Kalia Yang, educator, filmmaker, and author of the award-winning book The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir, will open the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership’s fall 2018 lecture series at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoiris the story of her and her family’s move from the Ban Vinai Refugee Camp in Thailand where the author was born in 1980 to Minnesota in 1987. It is the firsthand account of a journey from place to place many Hmong people have had to make to find “home.” The book received a Minnesota Book Award and was a finalist for several other prestigious honors.
