Gain more information and to tell your stories in an interactive space with openings for suggestions & questions.  We look forward to your joining us in this process.

We start our year with an opportunity to begin raising curiosity as well as crafting our responses to family, friends, acquaintances and legislators about  the Washington Carbon Tax Proposal, HB 1646.  

Guest speakers from the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy will provide an overview of the bill. According to its website this comprehensive bill addresses carbon pollution while creating jobs, investing in clean energy and positioning Washington State to be a leader on climate change.*    

Understanding and talking about this and the complimentary Senate bill 5509 to as many people in our lives give us the chance to support the women, children and men most affected by climate change.  We lend our support to insure the voices most often silenced by the effects of racism are heard and at the center.

Race and Climate Justice targets the underbelly of capitalism and its system of promoting and rewarding exploitation of people of color and our planet. In a country that is both benefiting from and scarred by this past, our group believes there is no effective solution to climate change without addressing racial inequality. Race and Climate Justice therefore works to make sure climate action centers race and doesn't perpetuate racial inequities. We work for a just transition to a world where people live equitably and cooperatively with each other and with the natural world.

We do this by:
acting in solidarity with and raising the voices of those most impacted by climate change
offering trainings, presentations, skill development and dialogues to raise awareness of the intersections of race and climate
helping create bridges across differences, divides and conflicts within the climate movement
