Tell the Biden administration not to renew Trump’s asylum ban
Commenting can stop the rule. Trump’s asylum bans were heartbreaking and met with outrage. We commented knowing that the Trump administration was unlikely to consider what we said. But we believe public outcry about inhumane policies can actually change things with this administration. The only thing we have to do is speak up! Comments close March 27th- if there’s no response from the public, a new version of Trump’s asylum ban will likely quietly go into effect.
Here are some resources to help get informed on the subject, and the talking points can help get you started on your own comment:

Pints & Progress, March 28 @ 5-7pm- Woodstock’s Pizza in Davis
In the spirit of getting out of the house and off campus, Indivisible Yolo will host its bi-monthly Pints and Progress event 5-7pm at Woodstock’s Pizza’s new location on the corner of 3rd and G in Davis.
This is a come-as-you-are informal gathering with fellow Yolo County residents concerned about the future of democracy. We can discuss the issues over a slice of pizza, your choice of beverage, and just plain socialize. In person! (Look for us on the 2nd level)
Indivisible Yolo on Climate Restoration
The IY Local Climate Action team is working with local climate allies, Yolo Citizens Climate Lobby, Ocean Iron Fertilization Alliance and Cool Davis, to bring author Peter Fiekowksy to Davis on April 13.
Simply reducing fossil fuel emissions is not enough. We need to start thinking beyond mitigation, adaptation and resilience to climate restoration. We can and must restore CO2 to levels that humans have survived long-term. Net-zero is important, but the UN goal of achieving it by 2050 is insufficient.
Join us at 7PM on April 13 at the Davis Community Church to hear author Peter Fiekowsky tell us about the movement to restore pre-industrial CO2 and the climate by 2050 using existing natural methods and available finance.
Please register for this free event on Eventbrite now to ensure you’ll have a seat.
