Restore the Delta is a rare combination of good outreach and solid policy work. This week, we are featured in several media and have filed a lawsuit against state and federal agencies for drought mismanagement of the Delta. Below is just a few of our most recent work.
- NPR All Things Considered: California's War Over Water Has Farmer Fighting Farmer (and we have 2 more segments airing today and tomorrow in the evening)
- Our recent lawsuit with partners against state and federal agencies for drought mismanagement (we have gotten coverage from Associated Press and an interview on NPR Capital Public Radio)
- Outreach and press release on Delta drought barriers and draft federal drought legislation bill
People have asked how to help–for this campaign, it's educate, protest and litigate (a last resort when education and protest does not work).
We need an extra boost to handle new litigation and media. Can you go to this button below and commit to a monthly donation? If all our supporters committed to $10 a month (two Starbucks drinks!), we would have the resources needed to topple the Big Special Interests. If you cannot make a monthly donation, please consider making a one-time donation. Every new member of our monthly givings club will receive a surprise complimentary and unique gift from us.
Thank you for your ongoing attention and dedication.
Yours in Service,
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Executive Director
Hi Barbara. I went to the meeting of 5/20 and wrote a letter to the board. We need to really start publicizing what a lousy job Governor Brown has done with drought relief. Rather than addressing the issue head on he continues to waste time, money, and resources on his twin tunnel project which will never be built. I think asking for him to be recalled may be the only way to get his attention since he refuses to listen to the many scientists who have expressed dismay at a plan which would remove more water from the Bay Delta Estuary. Starting to remind me of the inflexibility of the Bush regime in refusing to recognize reality. We need real leadership not people who are so damned afraid to speak up because they don’t want to appear to be opposing the Governor. Good luck. Happy to help in anyway I can. CA cannot afford to waste another eight years fooling around with the tunnels. So glad to hear you and others are suing the state at every opportunity and look forward to the day the BDCP is shut down permanently. Cheers Tom Schwertscharf
