Do you practice yoga?
We need your help to spread the value of ahimsa and keep our community safe. Developer Phil Tagami, who is suing the city of Oakland for it’s recent ban on coal storage and handling within the city, is also a yogi and the owner of Ume Yoga in dowtown Oakland. This lawsuit causes harm not only to our environment, climate, and health, but also to those who depend on city funds that are being diverted to legal expenses, and those who would are waiting for the clean energy jobs that would be available if  Mr. Tagami gave up his focus on coal.
As fellow yogis and yoginis, we are calling on Mr. Tagami to remember his commitment to non-harming and drop this dangerous lawsuit. Please join us in signing and sharing this open letter, and in signing up to get involved in our campaign.
