Please join us on Zoom (link available via email) from 7-7:40pm MT every other Wednesday night: W March 30, W April 13, etc. All are welcome! We’ll talk about the Four P’s—Policy, Plan, Purchasing Power, and People—as we prepare to qualify for the Nov 2024 ballot by collecting signatures from February to November, 2023. (Mark your calendars, and follow the previous link if you’re new to the campaign and want to get caught up!)

Purchasing Power boost from $5k matching challenge: Even a super-grassroots effort like ours needs to print petition papers and purchase pens and posterboards, so we’re thrilled to announce a $5k matching challenge from a donor who supports “small teams doing creative and strategic activism” on issues ranging from internet privacy to climate action. You can help us meet this matching challenge by making an online donation or by sending a check payable to Clean The Darn Air, PO Box 522468, SLC UT 84152. (Note that donations to political campaigns won’t get you a tax deduction, but they will get you our eternal gratitude!)

Plan, Policy, and People: We are continuing to refine our signature-gathering plan for 2023. You can help by sending us an email flagging any recurring events (or events planned for 2023) in your area that might draw lots of foot traffic. (Examples include concerts, festivals, food truck rallies, and sporting events, such as the NBA All-Star Weekend coming to SLC Feb 17-19, 2023.) And we are working on refining our policy as well. As for people, please forward this email to friends and colleagues with a note encouraging them to join our email list and inviting them to join you in making a donation!

Postscript: Help Becky Edwards qualify for the ballot: Climate and air quality champion Becky Edwards, who served in the state House from 2008-2018, is challenging Mike Lee for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. She’s turned in her first batch of signatures but needs more (because some will be invalid or illegible) to hit the 28,000 signatures she needs by April 11 to qualify for the primary ballot, so this is an opportunity for us to help a strong candidate… and get signature-gathering practice!
