Action - Join Our Effort - Here is How!
Unlimited population growth is not inevitable!! Congress gave us mass immigration by policy changes in 1965. Congress can fix it by adopting policy changes that will return legal immigration to traditional levels of approximately 235,000 annually. And, Congress can require strict enforcement on illegal immigrants by adequately funding internal policing, by enforcing employer sanctions, by enacting E-Verify, and by forsaking massive amnesties.
Reducing the flow of domestic migration is a thornier problem than reversing the tidal wave of foreign immigration and will have to depend on a wiser accounting of what our resource base can tolerate -- without degrading a decent standard of living with lower consumption levels. Climate change and ocean rise makes Florida even more precarious.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." -- Margaret Mead, the famous anthropologist
"Talk is cheap...It is the way we organize and use our lives everyday that tells what we believe in." -- Caesar Chavez, organizer and leader of the California lettuce and grape boycotts to improve working conditions for farm workers, 1970'a and 1980's
The first step in protecting our country's environmental integrity is awareness, then information gathering, and then a commitment to action -- unrelenting action.
Each of us is capable of doing more than fretting. Even YOU can make the difference.
Here is How:
- Write a letter to your local paper when you see news stories that you know
are caused by or made worse by TOO MANY PEOPLE. Every time we connect
rapid population growth to overcrowded schools, jammed roads
and water shortages, we trigger awareness.
- Talk, talk, talkto your
neighbors, your relatives, your social groups. Stick a piece
of literature in their hands, schedule a program at your church
or Rotary Club with one of Roy Beck's video tapes, or show the
video at your home to a few friends. Urge them to become a free faxer. Click here to read Joyce
