Save our Rocklands: 2 upcoming events

 

Friday, February 27th 

3:00 - 6:00 PM


Rally!

Buy it Back / Shame on U (of M)


Rally at
South Dixie & Stanford Drive / U of M Main Entrance.
Parking on Ponce near the University metrorail Station.
 
Help raise awareness of the University's shameful act.

Given to u of M by the Federal Government who required a 30yr commitment to use
the Pine Rocklands for educational purposes. 
In 1998 Miami-Dade offered to put the land under EELS conservatorship. 
In July 2014 RAM closed on the 88 acres, which had been rezoned as commercial. 
One month later, the Pine Rocklands were declared a
critically endangered habitat by the Fish and Wildlife service. 

Why was the property not cared for?
Did UM really not realize that the land was a rare vanishing habitat in need of protection?

Tuesday, March 3rd, 9:00 AM

Rock the Commission!
 
Government Center, Commission Chambers

 

Just your presence will send a strong message to the Commission.
And/or- if you would like- sign up for 2 minutes at the podium and tell the
Commission you oppose any development!!
 
Miami-Dade commission is set to continue its process of declaring the Richmond Pine Rocklands
a blighted slum so they can declare the area
a “Community Redevelopment Agency and tax and fund development”.
 
RAM Realty's claim:
     1.  The environmentalists are misguided;
     2.  That RAM is in fact the habitat's best stewards.
 
RAM's "preservation" is the minimum mandated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service
-a small portion of the acquired property -
 
The rest will be developed into a Walmart/strip mall.
If RAM / Miami-Dade have their way, expect increased traffic, congestion,
yet more development, low paying jobs and of course the loss of our last significant Pine Rocklands Habitat.
 Write, e-mail or call your Commissioner or all of them - and especially Mayor Gimenez
(he has veto power over the Commission).

Before anything may be accomplished we must...

 

LISTEN
 

When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving advice,

you have not done what I asked.

When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn't feel that way,

you are trampling on my feelings.

When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problems,

you have failed me, strange as that may seem.

Listen! All I asked, was that you listen,

not talk or do- just hear me. Advice is cheap: 10 cents

will get you both Dear Abby and Billy Graham in the same newspaper.

And I can do for myself; I'm not helpless.

When you do something for me that I can and need to do for myself,

you contribute to my fear and weakness.

But when you accept as a simple fact that I do feel what I feel, no matter how irrational,

then I quit trying to convince you and can get about the business of understanding what's

behind this irrational feeling.

And when that's clear, the answers are obvious. And I don't need advice.

Irrational feelings make sense when we understand what's behind them.

Perhaps that's why prayer works, sometimes, for some people,

because God is mute, and he doesn't give advice or try to fix things.

They just listen and let you work it out for yourself.

So, please listen and just hear me, and, if you want to talk,

wait a minute for your turn, and I'll listen to you.

Since they released their latest ad featuring Purple Heart recipient Glenn Kunkel, almost ten thousand veterans, military family members and VoteVets supporters have signed our petition supporting universal background checks. 

For us, this issue makes sense. Every service member needs to pass a background check before we're allowed to handle a weapon, and we should require the same of civilians at home. 

The Senate is expected to vote on this issue in less than two weeks, and they need to hear from us before they do. 

Use our "Contact Congress Tool" to tell your Senators you support universal background checks for gun purchases. 

http://action.votevets.org/your-voice  

Since our last email, an outpouring of contributions allowed us to put almost $200,000 behind the ad in three key states. 

We have a unique and important voice in this fight, and I hope you'll make sure yours is heard today. 

All the best,

Dear Kristin - 

One year ago, I was proud to walk onto the House floor for the State of the Union Address. 

The next day, after casting my last vote, I resigned my seat in Congress. 

Mark and I will be there again tomorrow night, because this is a critical moment in time for legislation to reduce gun violence in the United States. 

That's also why we're releasing our first television ad on the issue. As one of the first donors to Americans for Responsible Solutions, I wanted you to see it first. 

Watch the ad and forward it to your friends: 

http://action.americansforresponsiblesolutions.org/get-it-done 

 

Nine out of ten Americans support universal background checks for gun purchases. 

Congress must act. Let's get this done.
