  • Hi Jane,
    I was so thrilled to see that Netflix added FTA to their library today! I just finished watching and had to come and tell you how much I loved it. Makes me so happy that people will finally get a chance to see it after all these years. The remaster is beautiful and this doc shows all the sides of the GI movement that most Vietnam War…[Read more]

    Hi Jane,
    I just wanted to pop in and congratulate you on your award! Your speech tonight was so uplifting, and I couldn’t agree more—let’s all be leaders! Thank you for speaking about how the industry/Hollywood in general needs more diversity and inclusion, and how we need to elevate all voices, and address the inequality that has been a const…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane,
    I always love reading your updates and I have to say, I really appreciate your blog posts about the climate crisis and political issues and credit you for teaching me so much about this movement. It is because of Fire Drill Fridays that I began to get involved in climate activism locally and then with Greenpeace and Fire Drill Fridays…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane!
    So glad you were able to get your vote mailed in early! I just early voted this week here in Cleveland at our Board of Elections and was pleasantly surprised to see that for the 3rd week in a row, voters are turning out in droves! We have already seen over 200,000 early voters, which is more voters than we saw all together for the entire…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane!
    Just wanted to pop in and say congratulations on the one year anniversary of Fire Drill Fridays! I have been following from the beginning and have since gotten more involved in the climate movement because of FDF. We met last year at 2 of your tour dates and you encouraged me to stick with it and that meant a lot. I’m now a leader on o…[Read more]

    Hi Jane,
    Loved today’s conversation with Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen! My friends and I started a book club to read your new book and are looking forward to learning even more about how we can fight the climate crisis. We’re from different countries (United States, England, Canada, and South Africa) and we all met via twitter over our sha…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane,
    I just got off of the Zoom call with Andy Cohen and wanted to thank you again for your advice. I am the Robin from Cleveland who asked about how to reach the people who don’t believe that the climate crisis is urgent. It was really nice to talk to you and I so appreciate what you told me. I’m looking forward to the zoom call tomorrow wit…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane,
    Just finished my first text-banking shift as a volunteer and it went really well! I sent out 1,000 messages in total, and overall, the response was overwhelmingly positive. Though I of course did not hear back from everyone, the majority were ready and willing to take a moment out of their day to contact their Senators and demand…[Read more]

    Hi Jane!
    I signed up for my first shift volunteering with Fire Drill Fridays/Greenpeace and will be texting voters in California this week to ask that they contact their Senators to demand legislation that will stop local drilling. Also super excited because we will be inviting Greenpeace supporters to join the volunteer call to promote the new…[Read more]

    Hi Jane!

    I’m really enjoying these blog posts! They are taking me back to the time when you were on broadway in 33 Variations and you’d always blog about your day and sweet little Tulea. Glad to hear she still has that puppy energy at 15 ½! I still remember that story about her making her “broadway debut” as she ran out onstage during the curt…[Read more]

  • Thanks for this Jane! It’s good to hear from you! I have been using this extra down time during this pandemic to educate myself on issues that I am less familiar with and have really enjoyed the Fire Drill Friday live-streams that have focused on the intersectionality of the Black Lives Matter movement and the Climate Movement. I think it’s sup…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane!
    Hope you are doing well. I couldn’t agree with you more—I do not understand the people who are protesting with guns throughout the country. It’s upsetting that a public health crisis has been made into something so political, and people are unwilling to look out for one another by simply wearing a mask and abiding by the rules put into…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane,
    I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your FDF event this past Friday with Vanessa Nakate. I am amazed by how much she has done in Uganda and it was thrilling to listen to her speak! The young activists in the climate movement give me so much hope for our future and I feel really lucky to be a part of it myself. Our local climate…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane!
    Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for a great first virtual FDF! I’ve been working from home during this pandemic and it was really nice to hear from you and Senator Markey as well as the guys with Greenpeace. While we’re all sitting at home, we should all be utilizing our extra time to contact our representatives. What better tim…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane, glad to hear you are doing well! I live in Ohio and have been working from home. I feel very fortunate that my employer allows this and that I’m still able to take home a paycheck during this very uncertain time for many. I will be calling my senators today to urge them to use the bailout to help working Americans rather than big c…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane! Thanks for sharing this excerpt! Already preordered my copy of your book and am really looking forward to reading it. I am always looking for ways to continue my own climate activism and I can’t wait to hear more about your experiences. Since we are all currently stuck at home and unable to get out on the streets for climate strikes, t…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane,
    This sure is a weird time in the world. Here in Ohio all schools have closed and all state employees have been ordered to world from home. It breaks my heart that without school, many students are left without the meals they depend on. As this all unfolds, it’s more evident than ever that we need a President who will provide support to A…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane,
    Thank you for all you have been doing in DC and now LA with Fire Drill Fridays. I recently had an experience similar to what you described about feeling a need to get involved. For me, it has been hard to sit by the sidelines and watch this administration strip away environmental protections and regulations and destroy what we have left…[Read more]

  • Happy New Year, Jane! I’m so thrilled that you’re working on a book about Fire Drill Fridays! I’ve learned so much over the past several months about climate change, and your weekly teach-ins have been so helpful! One of my goals for 2020 is to get more involved locally with the Sunrise Movement and several other organizations. I’m so glad to read…[Read more]
