If you ever said you would join Dumbledore’s Army…

If you ever said you would join Dumbledore’s Army…

November 2016 was a dark time for many of us. I’ll never forget how it felt like something amazing was about to happen only for that feeling to be chipped away bit by bit as the electoral votes came in.

For me, it wasn’t so much about the change in party or that the candidate that I preferred didn’t win. Rather, it was more about the ideals that were being replaced. Like staring too long before the Mirror of Erised and having it taken away, there was a complete paradigm shift. My worldview went from hope for what could be to the harsh reality of what it was.

That meant it was time to roll up my sleeves and get to work. It’s time to rise up!

Now’s the time to rise up for CA-25 candidate Jess Phoenix

"If you've ever said you would join Dumbledore's Army if you'd follow the Mockingjay if you'd fight back against the Empire: Now's the time." – Sarah Gailey

Posted by T. Thorn Coyle on Thursday, November 10, 2016

Shortly after the election, I recall seeing a meme quoting Sarah Gailey with a call to action that really spoke to me. You see, I’m a geek at heart: a lover of knowledge, reason, truth, dreams and imagination, I felt led to get involved. I wanted to join Dumbledore’s Army. I wanted to follow the Mockingjay. I wanted to fight back against the Empire.

We have a Phoenix to lead us

And now, you can fight back with us! In fact, right here in California’s 25th district, there is a great group of volunteers regularly fighting against climate-change denier Steve Knight; it’s like we have our own version of the Order of the Phoenix. Volunteering with this group of people is not only a pleasure, it also provides such a great sense of unity and connection. And we’re all brought together by Jess and her vision.

Candidate Jess Phoenix embodies the very spirit of Dumbledore’s Army and the Order of the Phoenix — and not just because of her name. Like Harry Potter, Jess has integrity and grit. She stands up for the truth and evidence-based policy in a post-truth world. She finds creative solutions to difficult problems. She believes in lifting up the the disenfranchised, less fortunate and she gives them voices and representation. She defends those unable to defend themselves while teaching others to do so alongside her. And she fearlessly faces down volcanoes like it’s just another day at the office.

Her scientific background is a much needed asset in Congress. Not only does she bring her expertise as a volcanologist to the table, she’s also able to replace climate-change denier Steve Knight on the House Science Committee – as a freshman congressperson. 

But Jess is far more than all of that. She’s also a beacon of hope and an agent of change.

After all, the hallmark of a good leader is one that inspires you to believe in them. But the legacy of a great leader is one who inspires you to believe in yourself. If you’re looking for a leader to inspire you, go meet Jess Phoenix. You’ll be glad you did.

Let’s put on the sorting hat and find out how you can help send Jess to Congress.

Science fiction stars hosted Science Mayday in support of CA-25 Candidate Jess Phoenix

Science fiction stars hosted Science Mayday in support of CA-25 Candidate Jess Phoenix

Science fiction stars support CA-25 Candidate Jess Phoenix

Last night, stars of the science fiction world turned out in Hollywood in support of CA-25 Candidate Jess Phoenix. There is a Science Mayday alarm sounding, and stars are supporting Jess in leaps and bounds.  Jess is a science superstar, and the science fiction community loves her. And no wonder, she even launched her campaign at the Vasquez Rocks, an iconic location right here in our district. It’s also the site of a famous Star Trek battle where Captain Kirk battles a lizard creatured called Gorn. Here’s a clip to refresh your memory.

The event was held at IgnitedSpaces on Hollywood Boulevard and was hosted by stars from the world of science fiction like:

  • Bruno Amato
  • Eric Balfour
  • John Billingsley
  • Mary Chieffo
  • Chad Coleman
  • Aron Eisenberg
  • Spencer Garrett
  • Terry Matalas
  • Mary E. McGlynn
  • Bill Prady
  • Randi Mayem Singer
  • Tara Strong
  • Christopher Titus
  • Wil Wheaton and
  • Joss Whedon

Some of the stars gave speeches in support of Jess, and we’d like to share some of the highlights with you here.

Joss Whedon has been in the trenches for a while. We’ll let him tell you about it….

Eric Balfour has a new baby on the way, and he’s concerned about the future. Jess offers a future that makes him feel safe for his child.

John Billingsley supports Jess and encourges you to support her as well.

At a recent candidate debate, Jess was asked about her celebrity supporters. Of course it’s kind of cool to have support from these people, but when you think about the world of science fiction, it makes a lot of sense. Science fiction holds up a mirror to our society. It exposes not only the ills of today’s society, it also offers creative solutions.

If we are truly to live long and prosper, we need candidates like Jess Phoenix in office who have the expertise to save the planet from ourselves. Jess is not afraid to run toward a volcano to study; she’s not afraid to tackle the challenges faced not only by our district but also our nation.

How can you answer the science mayday?

There’s only another month until the California Primary. The most important thing you can do is vote. If you need help with registering to vote, we have some resources available to you to help you out. Also, vote by mail ballots go out on May 7th.  If you are able, please consider making a donation.

Science Mayday! Help CA-25 Candidate Jess Phoenix save the earth!

Mayday! Mayday! Science is under assault!

The earth is paying the price for it’s lack of evidence-based policy. Let’s beam up a solution: send scientist and CA-25 candidate Jess Phoenix to Congress for some much needed evidence-based policy and solutions.

The greatest threat to our security and prosperity is global climate change. Scientists agree – human activity is a big factor. When Republicans in Congress deny this reality, they are setting Americans up for suffering. I’ve studied climate change around the world during my decade of work as a scientist, and I will bring truth and facts to the table.” – Jess Phoenix

To save the earth, a Phoenix must rise!

Answer science’s distress call

We need your help this May Day. That’s right, the Science Mayday is being held on May Day. Members of the science fiction community, celebrity supporters, real scientists, and people just like you and me will gather at IgnitedSpaces on Hollywood Blvd in support of Jess’s campaign.
