Ventura Climate March and RESIST Update: The postcards are coming, the postcards are coming! Plus videos!

July 1, 2017

Have you received your RESIST or Ventura Climate March postcard in the mail yet? If not, it should arrive any day now!

On Sat Feb 11, 2017, about 200 of us gathered to express our commitment to RESIST as well as to create a line in the sand and to show we are compassionate rebels, we made two hearts. These human banners were photographed on the ground by John K. Golson and from the air by Mike Love and Maxwell Mandell. On that day I promised everyone who made a donation and gave us their mailing address on a mailing label that we’d send them a postcard.

John K. Golson addressing, labeling, and stamping the postcards he designed.

Then at the Ventura Climate March, I again promised postcards to participants who joined us to make a rainbow and a circle to show our unity for justice and jobs then swarmed with us to the Botanical Garden for the Thermo-Climb — and that’s where we collected both donations and addresses.

Well we did one better than simply sending a postcard to participants of each action: we sent postcards to all participants of either action who gave us their mailing address!

a box filled with 500 postcards was dropped off at the East Ventura PO on Weds 7/28/17; postcards began arriving on Thursday 7/29/17

Then we sent postcards to various government officials — regional, state, and national! Altogether we sent out about 500 postcards — and we have another 500 we can send.

If you want a postcard OR MORE POSTCARDS, please make a donation via PayPal on John K. Golson’s website:

  • $5 or more donation: we will send you 2 postcards in the mail (one of each)
  • $5 or more donation: we will send you 4 postcards in an envelope (2 of each unless you specify otherwise)
  • $10 or more and we’ll do both!
  • $20 or more donation: you will receive 20 postcards in an envelope in the mail (10 of each unless you specify otherwise).
  • $20 or more donation: we will mail 10 postcards in your name to elected and other relevant regional, state, and national officials.

Thanks to John K. Golson for creating the postcard, and the video below. More videos and a photo gallery to follow!
