NO MORE SECRETS”TELL THE TAXPAYER

It’s time for accountability”past time, actually. More than $2 billion has been spent on the UPF bomb plant and no one will tell us what the actual plan for the bomb plant is”because they are afraid to face the public.

So OREPA is launching the Tell the Taxpayer campaign in the month of November”while Congress is supposedly thinking about the budget they need to pass before December 11.

CALLING ALL TENNESSEANS!

The first round of the campaign is for Tennesseans (others can help, too, but we’re starting with Senator Alexander because he chairs the powerful subcommittee that holds the purse strings for the UPF bomb plant.

NOVEMBER is THE MONTH

We are asking people to write during November”specifically, from November 9 to December 8. If you have a monthly meeting, that’s great time to generate a nice stash of letters. You can write by snail mail (impressive!) or email.

We are providing fact sheets and talking points (see below or the sidebar on the right hand side of our web page). If you live close, we’ll try to come meet with you.

We will also post an article you can run in your November newsletter or send out to your listserv.

150 LETTERS IN ONE MONTH

That’s our goal”an average of five a day. We’ll need everyone’s help to do it.

Check out the fact sheets to get started!

Sunday Vigil at Y-12 in Oak Ridge Tennessee

Sunday Vigil

The OREPA Board has now decided that we are prepared to do a limited re-opening of the Sunday vigil to allow for slightly more participation.  We are asking anyone who wants to attend a Sunday vigil to sign up in advance—by the Thursday before. There are two ways to sign up. You can email Ralph at orep@earthlink.net or you can call him at 865 776 5050. If the five slots are already taken, we’ll ask you to wait until next week. All vigilers are expected to wear masks. Bring your own chair. Avoid physical contact and maintain an appropriate social distance in the circle of chairs. Of course, if for any reason you feel you may have been exposed to the virus or to someone with the virus, you should not attend the vigil. At this point, we are not resuming our monthly potlucks.
