We will be waiting to meet you on Saturday, October the 5th on the steps of the Washington State Capitol at 12 PM.
You are invited to yehow – to come together and only together – with everyone who believes that we are in a climate emergency.
Your words on our climate are good and truthful but now is the time to come together to put meaningful action behind those words.
Come stand with us and declare a climate emergency in the State of Washington.
Be bold! Issue an executive order to halt all fossil fuel projects in the state. Including the LNG facility in Tacoma, Methanol refinery in Kalama, Par Pacific Tar Sands Expansion Project, Puget Sound Pipeline Tar Sands Expansion and the North Seattle Lateral Upgrade Project.
Commit to Convening a special session on climate change in the 2020 legislative session. Ensure that this session includes voices from youth, indigenous leaders and other communities in Washington who are disproportionately affected by climate change.
We look forward to changing the course of history together so our children have a future. Nothing is more important than this. Any other commitment can be dropped or rearranged.

“The climate crisis is right here, right now, in our own backyard. Make no mistake: Here in Washington state, we will continue to lead the way in finding solutions and defeating climate change.” – Governor Jay Inslee, September 25th, 2019
