Greenpeace staff told me that you will be pitching our lobbying initiative on today’s Fir…[Read more]
Thanks so much for this extremely important and informative post. I’m going to be sure to share it with our GP volunteer community this week when I’m moderating our slack channels as a part of my ambassador duties. Everyone needs to read this!
I (and so many others!) really enjoyed our first movie night last week! Chasing Coral was…[Read more]
Huge congratulations on your Cecil B. DeMille award! That wonderful montage of your films made me want to watch so many of them again, especially Klute, which is one of my favorites! And your speech was just incredible! It was so important for everyone to hear your powerful words on diversity and inclusion, and it was truly the best…[Read more]
Happy 83rd Birthday to you! I hope your day will be filled with peace and love. You definitely deserve it! You are so incredibly inspiring, and your activism and influence have brought so many of us into the climate movement, including myself. You have truly reached out to so many of the “unasked,” enriching our own existence as wel…[Read more]
Thank you for this insightful blog post. I wish I could get so many of the people I encounter everyday to read it. So many people have little to no understanding of the GND. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been called a socialist or communist when texting for GP.
I was elated yesterday evening when we learned that we had…[Read more]
Thank you so much for another great Fire Drill Friday and for the breathing exercise at the beginning! We all really needed that! I’m getting more anxious each day as the election nears and it is getting close to impossible to sleep. But I’m calling, texting and organizing every day through the election so this helps a lot. I’m so ex…[Read more]
Congratulations again on the one year anniversary of Fire Drill Fridays! You have accomplished so much with this incredibly important initiative and I’m proud to be a part of it. I really look forward to seeing you and your guests every Friday and I have learned so much. This information and knowledge helps me greatly (as does your a…[Read more]
I just wanted to tell you about a really neat conversation I had while making calls for Fire Drill Friday/Greenpeace this week. I ended up calling a 70 year old Vietnam Veteran who told me he did some activist work with you and Tom Hayden in the 1970s. He also explained that while he served in Vietnam he was vehemently against the war…[Read more]
I just saw that you mentioned trying to volunteer for the Call Team with Flip the West. I’m on the Call Team and I’m actually training to be a trainer this week. So if you wanted to give it another try me or one of the other trainers would be happy to talk you through the process step by step. It can indeed be confusing at first if…[Read more]

Dear Jane! Thank you for letting me know. It really means a lot. And I just received my first order of your merchandise last week, and the sweats and shirts are really great! Everything is so cute and soft, and I love that they serve as a good starting point for me telling others about Fire Drill Friday! Thanks for everything!
The Fire Drill Friday rally was truly amazing today! The videos were extremely moving. I look forward to Fire Drill Fridays every week and I have learned so much from you and all of the great speakers.
I started texting for Greenpeace a few weeks ago and have been taking shifts three days per week. It has been such a great…[Read more]

Happy Belated Easter! I was having some glitches with my old account (Jenny Z) on this site so I made a new one so I could continue to participate in your blog. We met in Morristown, NJ in Dec. (as you can see from my avatar photo). I was the person who gave you the wooden nesting doll with your images if you remember!
Anyway, I…[Read more]
