Climate Crisis


Fall in COVID-linked carbon emissions won’t halt climate change - UN weather agency chief

......... climate change is but a single axis in the multidimensional space that is environmental sustainability.

........... mass die-off of birds in south-western US 'caused by starvation'

........................ microplastics found in placentas of pregnant women

Everything. Must. Change.

Georgia on my mind


Will there be a chance to pass voting rights, civil rights, climate crisis, student debt, immigration reform, and more legislation during a Biden administration?

It depends on the Senate.

You can help two Democrats actually drain the swamp by joining with Fair Fight from the comfort of your own home.

Do it.

Health Care Emergency Guarantee Act

Ask Congress to pass the Health Care Emergency Guarantee Act Immediately! 

We are living through a historic healthcare crisis. Twelve million Americans have been infected with Covid-19 this year, and over 250,000 of our fellow citizens have died. Yet, there is no unifying federal plan to ensure that all Americans have access to the healthcare that they need during this unprecedented time. 

We must demand that our representatives in congress pass the Health Care Emergency Guarantee Act, S. 3790, H.R. 6906, which guarantees medically necessary care for Covid-19 to all citizens, regardless of insurance coverage, thereby saving lives and preventing a wave of medical bankruptcies. 

Coulee DSA is partnering with Our Wisconsin Revolution and Linda and Gene Farley Wisconsin Chapter of PNHP to demand that our local representatives and state senators in Wisconsin and Minnesota co-sponsor the HCEGA.

12/15 - Enduring Families

If you haven't yet seen this really informative and excellent film, here's your chance to view it with new material and a panel discussion!

From the La CROSSE Public Library:

We invite you to join us for an evening with the Enduring Families Project as they debut the next two videos in their project. Begun as a bus tour in 2018, this important and growing theatre project brings to life the stories of early African Americans who lived in La Crosse from its beginnings. The program will begin with a viewing of the two newly completed videos of the project, filmed using local historical homes as a back- drop to lend historic authenticity to the telling of the stories followed by a panel discussion with the project leads.

This event will be held via Zoom. You will be sent the meeting information the week of the event.

The Enduring Families Project (EFP) mission is to broaden the narrative by the positive portrayal of the contributions, struggles, and perseverance of early local Black historical figures providing a venue for the development of understanding and respect between people in our community and a springboard for community conversations.

The EFP performs live re-enactments of these local Black historical figures for schools, educators and community organizations. To ensure the legacy of this important history videos have been created and will be shared with the community. Importantly the videos along with additional historical research will be incorporated into the La Crosse Public School curriculum.

Register by emailing prustad@lacrosselibrary.org or by calling Payge at 608-789-7145 to reserve your spot.

This program is in partnership between the La Crosse County Historical Society and the La Crosse Public Library.
