ACT

putting things in perspective:

1. There will always be forces for good and forces undermining the good.  We can’t change that.    

2. When we don’t bring our goodness to this unending fight (win or lose), other forces take over.  It’s that simple. 

3. We don't have to waste our energies just worrying, complaining or arguing.  We can make positive and effective change in the company of friends.

GETTING OUT THE VOTE (GOTV) for the NOV 6 Election has got to be the most important action we can take. Be part the voting revolution. Please go to INDIVISIBLE and let’s get to work!

Yours,

Corky

P.S. Originally this page was to be about Common Cause. As I explain below: “For almost 50 years, Common Cause, a non-partisan people's lobby, has been holding power accountable and defending our democracy.” Certainly we need Common Cause. It’s a game-changer. Since it’s inception it has been fighting to get money out of politics, fix political gerrymandering, fight voter suppression, and bringing truth to power. There are many individual issues that the public supports like reasonable gun control, environmental protection, but the people’s voice is drowned out by corporate interests and the like. By supporting Common Cause you are allowing the people voice to be heard and that alone will fix a lot of concerns. Think about that. But for now we go to INDIVISIBLE and Get Out The Vote!

Music and Politics: My job in this world is to bring joy to myself and others through music. There is no wall between that and the rest of my life. Doing my part in promoting kindness, diversity, and defending & nurturing democracy has always been a natural extension. So I offer my perspective as it arises out of a life of music, in the hopes that it might be helpful to one person. - Corky Siegel



After Nov 6, I will update the rest of this page



WHY I CHOSE Common Cause  

“ ... there probably has never been a reform movement so active and with such a record of accomplishment.”   - Christian Science Monitor

For almost 50 years, Common Cause, a non-partisan people's lobby, has been holding power accountable and defending our democracy.

The non-partisan issues Common Cause takes on are game-changers.  

Join Holly and I for this joyous and endless fight against corruption and greed (and now I add "inhumanity).  There are many ways we can be part of the solution.  Take a look. Click on one or all of these links.

A note about current events: It has been suggested that we imagine that our own child is being taken from us. How would we respond? That's how we all should respond because these "are" our children.
