Rachel's News -- Helping you protect nature, human health and democracy since 1986

Dear Readers & Supporters,

Please join us and celebrate our mutual interdependence! We exist because of YOU and for you. You've been enjoying our weekly publications. Now, you can help us delivery another three months of hard hitting news, tools, and resources to build the movement for a just and sustainable society by making a donation today.

We've been helping grass-roots activists make better informed decisions about our environment and community health for over twenty years. Together, our work has paid off!: In the 1990's we helped shut down 90% of all landfills in America; WITH MANY OTHER GRASS-ROOTS ACTIVISTS we crippled the garbage incineration industry, stopping the construction of 80% of these wasteful, polluting machines. And we helped citizens deep-six a whole series of "low level" radioactive waste dumps planned for each region of the country with their associated transportation hazards.

Please make a donation today, whether its $50 or $500, every dollar counts. Help us reach our goal of $25,000 for our Fall Fund Drive and rest easy knowing that we'll be here, week in and week out.

We work hard to keep you abreast of industry's continued onslaught of dangerous technologies like genetic engineering and nanotechnology. And we highlight the most innovative ways that citizens are fighting back -- with tools like the Precautionary Principle, the Public Trust Doctrine and a slew of innovations like Zero Waste, Renewable Energy, and Local Living Economies.

More and more our work is about preventing environment and health problems. We believe Americans have better things to do than to fight polluted air-water-and-food. With your donation today, we'll continue to doggedly promote safer alternatives and better decision- making tools. Another world is possible.

We envision a day when everyone involved in the decision-making process about dangerous technologies will ask: "How can we achieve prosperity while at the same time minimizing harm to people and the environment." It's that simple, but it's a profound shift.

Help us make that shift a reality and donate now.

Thank you for your ongoing readership and support!

Peter Montague, Executive Director

Ed Begley Jr., President of the Board
