Get climate justice on the state ballot!

Official Action for Tuesday, May 22

We have a special Resist Trump Tuesday rally and weekly meeting today. You can find more details at the end of this message. We hope to see you there!

We want you to help us get Initiative 1631: Clean Air, Clean Energy on the ballot this November. This initiative will provide investments in a healthier future for everyone, and a clean energy economy that works for everyone. This initiative was developed with a focus on environmental justice, and is the product of a coalition of organized labor, environmental groups, small business, faith communities, and groups representing communities of color. This is a big deal - even Governor Inslee has endorsed!

If you are a registered voter, please sign this petition.

You can also sign up to help gather signatures at https://yeson1631.org. Use the "Find Events" button to find a signature gathering event near you, or use the "Volunteer" button to become a Climate Justice Steward and organize your own signature gathering events.


This weekend will be a big one with the 4-day long Northwest Folklife Festival. Can you help out?

This week will be a little different from our typical Resist Trump Tuesday Rally. We will join Maru Mora Villalpando, a fierce and tireless truth-speaker who has put her life on the line in the fight to end detention and deportation at 12:30. Maru will go before an immigration judge for the second hearing in her deportation case. A rally will take place outside the building while we wait for Maru to emerge and update us on what happens in court.

Democrats took full control of the Washington State Legislature this year and were able to pass voter access laws, a revamp of police use of force laws, a first-in-the-nation net neutrality law, and gun safety legislation including outlawing bump stocks. But did you know Dems only have a one vote majority? Hear from State Representative Noel Frame on the political landscape for WA state in 2018, where progressives can make gains, and how you can help.

Please join us for this rare opportunity to hear an inside analysis of the 2018 election, where the State House and State Senate will be in play.
