We must do more than sit by and wait. We must act.
I’m going to ask for your help. In a moment, I’ll tell you why.
But first, we at OCA hope that you and your family are safe and well.
Safe from the west coast wildfires and Atlantic and Gulf Coast hurricanes.
Safe from major health concerns, daunting financial worries, crushing injustices.
These are challenging, indeed frightening times.
For millions of people. For the future of our democracy. For the survival of our common home.
But this is no time to give up. That’s why I’m asking for your support today, so we can step up our education and advocacy work in these critical times. Can you make a donation today? Click here to donate online, by mail or by phone.
If I had to single out one common thread running through the multiple crises we face today, it would be corporate greed.
Greedy Big Food and Big Ag corporations have exploited “essential” workers, poisoned our water, destroyed the nutrients in our soil along with the soil’s capacity to store carbon, made us obese, yet undernourished—and left us highly vulnerable to illness, including COVID-19.
Greedy Big Oil (along with Big Ag) have fueled a dire climate emergency.
Greedy Big Pharma can’t wait to push the next pill—or vaccine—on people whose health has been compromised by the processed junk food industry.
Greedy Big Advertising and Big Media collude with Big Business to promote false narratives over facts.
Meanwhile, greedy politicians line up to grab their corporate donations in exchange for selling out the public’s best interests.
Where does that leave you? Where does it leave us . . . and the generations to come?
It leaves us to expose the greed and corruption, for all to see.
It leaves us to educate millions of people about what’s really going on—and what each of us can do to help turn things around.
It leaves us to bring the stories of resistance and hope and resilience directly to you, the people, so we can inspire millions more stories just like them—and build the largest mass movement in history.
If it’s true that the darkest hour is just before the dawn, surely dawn is right around the corner.
But we must do more than sit by and wait. We must act.
