I need your help!

Dear Friends,

Moment of absolute candor: For the past thirteen months, I’ve worked full-time as an unpaid volunteer for justice, the environment, our democracy and other critical causes near and dear your heart and mine.

It hasn’t been easy, but I am encouraged by the feedback I receive from you and many others. I don’t like to toot my own horn, but I’m told what I have to offer Iowa and our country is unique. My three decades of political activism have given me connections, experience and a valuable platform from which to get things done on the pressing challenges of our time.

I live simply and resourcefully. Yet, I can’t continue to work 50-60 hours a week as a volunteer and make ends meet. If the work is to continue, I need a whole bunch of you to step forward and support my work financially, ideally by becoming monthly supporters.

Please consider $10, $25, $50 or $100 a month, as your resources allow.

Click here to support the Fallon Forum, one of the only independent talk shows in Iowa. Your backing helps me and my production team provide cutting-edge programming with great guests, including today’s line-up: Attorney Wally Taylor discussing coal-fired power plants; Des Moines MPO’s Gunnar Olson and Windsor Heights Mayor Diana Willits discussing the complete streets initiative; Mississippi attorney Joe Murray discussing the role of the media in presidential politics.

Click here to support Climate Action NOW!, the successor to the Great March for Climate Action. Your backing allows our climate activism to bear fruit, including publishing a book based on my walk along the pipeline route; helping landowners and others get their voices heard in deliberations on the proposed pipeline; bird-dogging presidential candidates on climate issues; and two other major initiatives in the works that will be announced soon.

I want to continue fighting for you, our environment and our country – and I want to continue to do it full time. I’d rather not take a job at Monsanto, Exxon or Goldman Sachs, or live in a tent by the river and subsist on weeds and squirrels.

If enough of you step forward, I won’t have to.

So, do it for the squirrels and become a monthly supporter today! Thanks!
