• Songs for the River
    A collaborative CD produced by Artists 4 Action including songs from Pete Seeger, Jackson Browne, Don Henley and more.

Salmon of the Columbia River are facing Extinction!

We need your help to speak up & say that we want to ‘Save the Salmon’ by doing whatever it takes to keep the Columbia River from becoming…‘A River of Ghosts’


A Tribute to Pete Seeger (1919 - 2014)

There is no one else like Pete Seeger! He has lived all of his 90-some years in pursuit of Truth & Justice. Best known for being a founding father of the American Folk Music Movement, he is also a tireless fighter for social and environmental causes. He has stood tall and spoken the Truth to Power. He has fought for the rights of working people, minorities and Nature. He has lead the way, with Song! He rode the Freedom Buses in the 60's, and stood up for the Civil Rights of all Americans. He sang with Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie to help change the world, with music!

FRACCIDENTS: America is in the midst of an unprecedented oil and gas drilling rush—brought on by fracking. But that boom also comes with troubling reports of poisoned drinking water, polluted air, mysterious animal deaths, industrial disasters and explosions (aka "fraccidents"). Check out the map>> http://ow.ly/uLHrw

SHARE and LIKE to share this map! People need to know the truth about fracking and not just hear rosy reports from the oil & gas industry.
