PLEASE READ, RT and SUPPORT @kumeyaayprotest / #kumeyaayprotest and O'odham Land Defenders. It's our obligation to recognize how we fight for climate justice on sovereign land. interc.pt/3c4v10l by @rdevro
En las últimas semanas, nuestrxs hermanxs de las tribus Kumeyaay y O'odham han estado defendiendo tierra sagrada y el manantial Quitobaquito. O'odham, Kumeyaay and allies have been holding ceremony and prayer on unceded land near Quitobaquito Springs for weeks. #Kumeyaayprotest
Es nuestra obligación reconocer a nuestrxs hermanxs de las tribus O'odham y Kumeyaay que han defendido la tierra por más de 12,000 años, y la construcción del muro continua a perpetuar violencia a tierra y sitios sagrados. #Kumeyaayprotest #NoBORDERWall #NoMuro
On 9/21, #LandDefenders linked arms and de-arrested and protected each other from being arrested by @CBP and @NatlParkService as they prayed in sacred ceremony in protest of the wall.

We are listening in on the @CorpCommAZ public comment session on the @apsFYI proposed rate hikes. We will be live-tweeting stories and comments shared to remind the ACC it's time for #APSForgetTheDebt & to say NO on a hike of any kind that will further burden our communities.
First caller is @Dulce4Justice: I am calling because I feel it is an extreme injustice for our community for @apsFYI to be asking for an increase while we live in a global pandemic & the hottest year we have ever had. I ask the commission to Vote NO. #APSForgetTheDebt
Prescott Valley @apsFYI ratepayer — I am too against the rate increase @CorpCommAZ! 2 years ago APS increased their rate & now they want to double it. APS is forgetting Arizonans live on a fixed income. This is unfair & unjust. #APSForgetTheDebt

Meet the APS Customers Calling on @apsFYI to Forget The Debt

On 10/15, AZ customers will face a massive electric shock when the payment moratorium comes to an end — Hear Josie's story here. Spanish speakers were denied access to the @CorpCommAZ public hearing earlier this month
“Hello, my name is Josie Ramirez and I am an APS customer and at the moment in this hot weather we are having many problems with electricity bills, the entire area here are APS and everyone is having a problem..."
"Right now in this time of pandemic it is very difficult to pay our bills, very difficult because of the jobs, there is not much work, many people are not working and that is the reason why we want our bills to go down a little bit or help us with our bills or delete them"

On 10/15 the utility summer shutoff moratorium will END. We know 71,254 APS customers are in arrears — 20,850 are at immediate risk of being disconnected

ACC Commissioner @SandraDKennedy is working to lift up these families, filing this letter last week: docket.images.azcc.gov/E000008717.pdf
Meet the APS Customers Calling on #APSForgetTheDebt

“I am Beatriz Beltran, I have been a client of APS for more than 20 years and in this time the electricity has been very expensive. But it has risen more in this time of pandemic, the bill is very high"
"I ask you, please, lower the bill or maybe eliminate it, do something because the bill if we don't pay a little, the door will grow and that will help us, but do something. Thank you." - Beatriz Beltran

.@Dulce4Justice tells @CorpCommAZ: This is outrageous, how could @apsFYI be asking to raise their rates? It’s an injustice to people all across the states. Don’t give an increase to APS, but also forget the debt! #APSForgetTheDebt
"This is the hottest summer in AZ and people have to stay indoors. This is the time for debt relief for families. Last year there were millions worth of debt. We’re asking for a 20-30 million this year. " - @Dulce4Justice #APSForgetTheDebt
"I'm also calling on behalf of Spanish speakers because @CorpCommAZ doesn't have the ability to take Spanish only comments. That's also an injustice! They can’t afford to pay their bills! This corruption needs to stop. " #APSForgetTheDebt

The #GreatAmericanOutdoorsAct has passed the House! This bill will FULLY fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which protects public lands, local parks, and open spaces that are critical for our community’s health, wellbeing, and the conservation of our heritage. 1/4 Image
For years, our public lands have been underfunded. This bill allows for opportunities of investment in communities of color that have historically lacked access to open and public spaces. 2/4
This is a huge win for conservation, & would not be possible without the leadership of indigenous communities who are the original caretakers of these lands. Their voice and leadership must continue to be centered in the fight to conserve and protect public lands. 3/4
