- Watch the announcement of Bloomberg's gift to Mary Anne Hitt's Beyond Coal: $60 million to fight big coal! Wow!
- A great POLITICO write-up on SiX, which includes the following endorsement from US Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota): “From the progressive caucus standpoint, we kind of feel like SiX is what the doctor ordered."
- POLITICO has also called SiX the ALEC-killer. Totally apt, in our humble opinion.
- The Washington Post summarizes how wealthy liberal donors are gearing up to put money to organizations that's going to fight for progressive wins in the state level, SiX included.
