More Resources

I've run across some interesting new resources lately, though they may not be new to you.

The Pennsylvania Women's Campaign Fund -- I had no idea it existed.

The Pennsylvania Women's Campaign Fund is the only state-chartered political
action committee that works to elect progressive women to the Pennsylvania
General Assembly, regardless of political affiliation. In 2007, we will
celebrate 25 years of helping women succeed in politics. We also partner
with educational institutions and community groups to sponsor Campaign
Schools in various regions of the Commonwealth.

Faith in Public Life has release a new dvd:

Emblematic of the growing movement that pairs religious leaders with scientists, a national coalition of clergy, religious groups, policymakers, scientists and environmental groups today announced the DVD release of the critically-acclaimed climate change film The Great Warming and the goal of getting the movie screened in 10,000 churches prior to the 2008 election. Already seen in 500 churches by at least 30,000 people, The Great Warming presents climate change as a moral, ethical and spiritual issue.

The DVD release is part of a major initiative to engage Americans in proactive action and advocacy to make environmental stewardship and creation care a top policy priority. A special package is being offered to churches, which includes a copy of the DVD and a set of downloadable guides specifically designed for religious audiences, including a Sunday School discussion guide and a 60-page Creation Care
sermon guide with source material from the Old and New Testaments.

IssuesPA has posted information on a study town gown relations:

The Town and Gown Dilemma: The Impact of Universities on their
Host Municipalities

Pennsylvania’s universities are terrific economic and social
assets, both regionally and statewide. But what’s the bottom
line impact on their host municipalities? IssuesPA takes a
closer look.
