More from last night's I&M meeting http://wane.com/2017/02/21/hundreds-reject-ims-pollution-plan-for-rockport-plant/

Church member, Carla Kilgore, and Pastor Brian Flory spoke at last evening's Indiana Regulatory meeting in favor of renewable energy. Some of Pastor Brian's comments are as follows: "Indiana Michigan Power has invested some money in renewable energy, which is a good start,” said Pastor Brian Flory of Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren in Fort Wayne. “But it’s only a start. We call upon I&M to put more resources and commitment into a broader 20-year energy plan with a substantial investment in renewable energy, including wind and solar. The technology is there, the prices are dropping, the people are waiting and the planet is hurting. Now is the time.” #IM4cleanenergy

This is a variation on the signs we have had. Welcoming Fort Wayne is looking for more funding so these signs can spread the message of love and inclusion all over the city. For donation information, see post below.

In yesterday's Fort Wayne Journal Gazette our very own Emily Hollenberg wrote this wonderful response. Great job, Emily! Keep preaching, sister. -------- ‘Threatened’ by protest? Mission accomplished In response to “Ladies don’t protest as Madonna did (David McKeeman Sr., Feb. 5)”: On Jan. 21, 3.3 million women – and men – gathered in the world’s largest protest. Marches were spread across nearly 500 cities in the United States and all seven continents. Besides the staggering number who came out to support women’s and minority rights, there was one more key fact. There was not a single arrest, nor was there a single instance of destruction of property. That makes the world’s largest march the world’s most peaceful march. So when I read that this gathering of “radicalized” people is an embarrassment to my gender, I feel I’m missing something. What is an embarrassment to me is that one in four women will be raped in their lifetime, and that men still make more than women more than 40 years after the Equal Pay Act. (We must also factor in race; white women make more than black men currently.) It is an embarrassment that our country has fewer women in government than any other First World country. It is an embarrassment that women are written out of history. But the word I’m looking for is not “embarrassment.” The word I want to use is “outrage.” And what did 3.3 million “radicalized” people do with centuries of outrage? They protested peacefully. To create change, we cannot be silent and stand by. When women wanted the right to vote, we were loud. It is nice to believe that we live in a world where if we simply ask, we will be granted rights, but that is not the world men have created. When you say that we need to conduct ourselves as ladies when we protest, what you really say is: Please protest in a way that keeps me comfortable. You are policing us as men have policed us for centuries, and we are done with it. So it really is remarkable how peaceful the protest was, considering all that we protested for. In fact, our protest was not threatening. We came together in force to get our point across – that we are women, that we are here to stay, and that we will be heard and not written off. What Madonna said was threatening. I do not agree with everything she said, but her overall message was clear: Women are here, we are not leaving and we will not stand idly by. Protests should be peaceful, but they should also be threatening. Protests serve as a reminder that we will not stand for what is being done to us. I’m glad Madonna made you uncomfortable because in this equation, as a man, you have all the power. We are not taking your power away. We are getting the power we always should have had. And to you, that is quite threatening. It should be. Emily Hollenberg Fort Wayne

Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren shared Indiana Beyond Coal's event.
Are you concerned about the environment? Join us at this public hearing tomorrow night and let your voice be heard!
Attend this public hearing happening on Tuesday, February 21, starting at 6:00 pm in the Community Room at Homestead High School, 4310 Homestead Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46814. RSVP at sc.org/fortwayne to get the details for our pre-hearing gathering taking place at 5:15. More information: I&M is trying to raise your bills to pay for a project at the Super-Polluter AEP-Rockport coal plant. Attend this public hearing to say NO to this Rockport Ripoff. I&M wants to spend $274 million in new air pollution equipment for Unit 2 at the Rockport plant, even though Unit 2 may not be used by I&M customers after 2022. In upcoming years, I&M wants to sink an additional $3 billion dollars into projects at the Rockport plant, which would raise customers' bills even more. Even after these projects would be completed, the plant would remain a large polluter of our air, land, water and climate. The super polluter Rockport coal plant was the sixth largest carbon polluter in the nation in 2014, and will remain a large carbon polluter as long as it continues to burn coal. Rockport's coal-burning Unit 2, the subject of this proposed rate hike, is owned by five wealthy out-of-state corporations and Wall Street banks: General Electric, Verizon, JP Morgan, Citigroup and tobacco giant Philip Morris. This is the rich trying to get richer while Hoosiers in Southern Indiana suffer from pollution and customers in Northern Indiana pay more to keep a coal plant running that should be retired, burning coal for years to come. By December 2019, I&M must install new air pollution controls on Rockport 2, but I&M hasn't decided whether to extend or cancel its lease agreement with the wealthy owners. That means I&M customers are being asked to pay 10 years for a project that may only be useful to us for three years before the lease expires.
