Rachel Radell-Harris to be June 1 Monthly Members Meeting Speaker
Rachel Radell-Harris grew up in the Auburn area and has always been proud to call it her home. Rachel completed her BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley, and started her career by going back to school to get her Master’s in Business Administration from CSU Sacramento. Rachel moved back to Auburn with her husband to raise their family.
Over the past 13 years, Rachel has devoted her career to public service. In 2007, she was selected by the American Society of Civil Engineers to serve as their National Science and Technology Policy Fellow in Washington DC. Working for Senator Dianne Feinstein, she learned first-hand about federal policymaking and used her knowledge and skills as an engineer to work on pressing societal challenges. Most recently, Rachel has spent 12 years working in public power to create and promote energy conservation and customer assistance programs.

A Message From Our President Terry Rodriguez, June, 2023
AADC MEMBERSHIP DRIVE AND DONOR MONTHS
Potluck June is back in action, and we have Sunny Carraway to thank this year for putting an AADC tradition back on the calendar where it belongs. And where it will continue. It’s all part of our comeback tour from three years of hiding in our homes from that bug that gripped the world, aka The Pandemic. The Pandemic Witch is gone, and we are still here. And we are going to celebrate.
WIN BACK THE HOUSE STRATEGY
By Pat Ferguson, Auburn Indivisible
Reprinted from the May 4, 2023, Indivisible Newsletter
“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”
Democrats lost the House in 2022 by only 6,675 votes. That amounts to about .006 percent of the 107 million votes casts. If those votes had been spread strategically across five selected districts, we would have the House majority and Rep. Jeffries would be speaker. Jim Jordan wouldn’t be a committee chair. Duarte, in CA 13, won by 564 votes, Maloney NY-17 lost by 1,820 votes, and other close races. What a difference that would have made. The GOP in the House is hell-bent on pursuing a MAGA agenda.
VOTER REGISTRATION AT SIERRA COLLEGE – 2023
By Leslie Moonshine, AADC Voter Registration Team Member
The two Voter Registration teams visiting Sierra College have just completed another successful school year of student engagement. We registered over 130 new voters and tallied more than 26 weeks of campus visits. Most of the registrations occurred prior to the 2022 midterms. We also gave out dozens of cards with a QR code to the Secretary of State website for students to check their registration status at their leisure.

Our Partner: The Alliance for Environmental Leadership
The Alliance for Environmental Leadership (AEL) brings together like-minded organizations and citizens to defend natural ecosystems, to organize for civic action, and to advocate for Smart Growth because it serves all community members and protects the environment that sustains us. Smart Growth reduces dependence on cars in towns and cities. Unless this dependence falls drastically, our transition to lithium battery-powered electric vehicles will deepen local and global environmental and social inequities linked to high-cost housing and mining. It may even jeopardize the 1.5c global heating target. Please click here to read the rest of this article.
