We are working locally to prevent gun violence through common sense legislation and committed action. It has been two decades since the massacre at Columbine took the lives of 13 students. It has been fifteen years since the Virginia Tech massacre took the lives of 32 students. It has been ten years since the massacre at Sandy Hook took the lives 26 students and staff. And 10 more years of senseless gun violence.  Twenty two weeks into the year 2022, America has already seen at least 246 mass shootings.  Make it Stop

S Q U I D – and Nantucket

Fisherman Peter Kaizer and other concerned Nantucketers, are working to educate the general public about these alternatives, which are necessary for the sustainability of forage food, in specific, the squid spawning event.

Insuring that the same protections are in place for Nantucket’s waters AND limiting the catch amounts during the spawning season are vital to the sustainability of critical bait fish for this region.
