A coalition of Kentucky organizations is sponsoring "Rallies for Climate, Care, Jobs, and Justice" this Thursday at 5:30 PM. From the press release:

"Members of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth and our allies in the Kentucky Just Transition Coalition know that the climate crisis — which is now blinking code red — is closely intertwined with racial and economic injustice, democracy under attack, and the raging pandemic. That’s why we are working together with national and state allies to push for a bold, transformative package of federal investments in climate, care, jobs, and justice.

Your voice is critical as we call on Congress to pass key elements of the THRIVE agenda and President Biden’s Build Back Better plan, including: a $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan, a $3.5 trillion investment in climate solutions and the care economy, and legislation to protect our elections and democracy.

Join us Thursday evening, August 19, at a climate, care, jobs and justice rally or event near you, part of a nationwide day of action.

The Daily Wrap for Monday, 5/20

A very light news day, with most of the focus on the arrest of the golfer at the PGA last week. Of note, though, is Heather Cox Richardson’s summary of President Biden’s commencement speech at Morehouse.
